In the previous 146 years of the Kentucky Derby, no woman trainer has ever won it.

That could change Saturday when a Kentucky native takes her spot among the industry's most accomplished trainers.

Vicki Oliver is the Kentucky Derby's first female trainer since 2015.

Now she's living her dream, making a bid to win the Run for the Roses with her long-shot Hidden Stash.

If she were to win the Derby it would be quite the upset, as Hidden Stash is coming into Saturday's race with 50 to 1 odds.

Post time for the 147th Running of the Kentucky Derby is at 5:57 PM Central Time.

We woke up to dry and cold conditions this Tuesday morning. Unfortunately, there won’t be any drastic changes this afternoon. Increasing cloud cover will be likely as a cold northerly flow continues ushering in chilly air. Highs won’t be going very far, we’ll likely only reach the mid to upper 30s Tri-State wide. We’re tracking a little bit of winter weather out to our north and west. Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight with a chance of flurries/light rain. It won't be a big snow by any stretch, but you could see some flurries flying Tuesday night into Wednesday morning around the Tri-State. Don't expect more than a dusting, with greater chances falling north of I-64.
