APPLE BLOSSOM INVITATIONAL / ARKANSAS DERBY
10 a.m., Oaklawn Park, Hot Springs. $4.50

When Zenyatta, the 3-year-old superhorse that's been unbeaten in 15 starts, landed in Hot Springs on Tuesday, more than 200 people showed up at the airport, all cheers and signs, including one saying “marry me, Zenyatta” in Sharpie. This weekend, with the Apple Blossom Invitational on Friday and the 74th Arkansas Derby on Saturday, is expected to be the biggest derby weekend, in attendance and bucks, ever held at Oaklawn. Folks who can't watch the Derby in person will be able to see it on NBC, which is telecasting live.
