LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- As next Saturday's Kentucky Derby nears, things are starting to pick up on the backside of Churchill Downs. 

On Monday, all four of Todd Pletcher's expected Derby horses this year -- Noble Indy, Audible, Vino Ruosso and Magnun Moon -- all made the trip safely from Florida. While Audible maybe the strongest of the group, Pletcher's exercise rider, Nick Busch, believes each has what it takes to win the Run for the Roses.

One horse that knows a bit about showing up on the big day was Always Dreaming. Last year's Derby champ also arrived to Louisville Monday, making his return to Churchill Downs.

Always Dreaming is set to race on Oaks Day in the $400,000 Alysheba Stakes.
