Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear and First Lady Britainy Beshear helped unveil the 2021 Kentucky Derby Celebration Poster, along with other posters during a ceremony Monday in Frankfort.

Lexington, KY artist Lennon Michalski designed this year's poster.

"The Kentucky Derby will have some fans in-person this year.  This is what is possible through our successful rollout of the safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines," said Gov. Beshear.

The 147th Kentucky Derby will have limited capactiy at Churchill Downs when the gates open on May 1st.

"Thoroughbred horse racing is many things in Kentucky: it's sport, culture, business and heritage," said Gov. Beshear.

"This year's poster extemplifies the excitement and enthusiasm that surrounds the greatest two minutes in sports.  It also serves as a wonderfully vibrant and cherished memento of the race for the public."

The bitterly cold start to our Wednesday will inevitably lead to a cooler-than-average afternoon across the Tri-State. We're currently expecting an afternoon high of 26° in Evansville on Wednesday afternoon (that’s 17° below average for this time of the year). Temperatures will once again dive back down towards the teens for many of us overnight and into early Thursday. As for right now Thursday morning looks as though will be slightly warmer, but only just - believes model data indicates that we will see a morning low temperature of 14° under partly cloudy skies in Evansville tomorrow morning.
