Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- It's a sign that Derby is right around the corner -- this afternoon the signs at Churchill Downs were changed.

Crews were busy taking down the Kentucky Derby 138 signs and replacing them with Kentucky Derby 139 signs.

Today is the first day the barn area at the historic track reopened after a winter renovation.  Training for the horses resumes tomorrow.

The 38-day spring meet opens April 27th, and Derby Day is May 4th.
