More rain plagued the flood-stricken Ohio River valley Sunday, causing some streams to rise again and slowing the monumental cleanup from the area's worst deluge in more than three decades. Compared with the foot of rain that fell in the region a week ago, however, the new rains were more a nuisance than a threat to life and property. The Licking River, a tributary of the Ohio in central Kentucky, was rising again Sunday near Falmouth, a town devastated by last week's flooding.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- It didn't take long, two races in fact, for the main track at Churchill Downs to be upgraded to "fast. " So, barring any rain, the Kentucky Derby will be run on an optimal surface. After the first race, the track was upgraded from "muddy" to "sloppy" and then it was called "fast" after the second race. There were still some puddles on the outside of the track where horses rarely run.

A trip to Kentucky and the Breeders' Cup Sprint is a possibility for Frost Free after his victory in Wednesday's $106,525 Ancient Title Breeders' Cup Handicap at Santa Anita. Trainer John Sadler said he will see how the 6-year-old gelding comes back after his first race in more than six months, then talk things over with owner Joyce Vandervoort. There would be no doubt about Frost Free being a Breeders' Cup entrant if the races were being held at Santa Anita.
