Weather, traffic changes on Keeneland's opening day

It's a big day for horse racing fans, the opening day of Keeneland's fall meet.

And this year, you will notice a few changes.

A median has been removed so five lanes of traffic can now exit from gate one.

Roads have been put in on the hillside, so cars can park from two directions, and this year, the first post on Friday will be at 2:15 PM instead of 1:00 PM, so exit traffic won't have to deal with Friday night rush hour.

Weather is also playing a big role in opening day.

A rainy morning will give way to some more serious weather as the day rolls on.
