Sunrise to Go: Monday, June 9

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Here are 10 things Kentuckiana will be talking about today:

1: Cooler: You'll see more clouds than sunshine today with temperatures coming in slightly below normal for this time of year.  A few isolated storms are possible overnight, but most of the storms will hit us tomorrow with a slight chance of severe storms.  Our main threats tomorrow will be gusty winds and hail as a warm front approaches the area.

2: Comments:  A day after California Chrome fell short of winning the Triple Crown, his vocal co-owner isn't backing down on his claims that the rules of the race cost him the win. Some horse racing fans believe Steve Coburn made matters worse with his comments after California Chrome finished fourth at the Belmont Stakes.

3: Disappointment: There were California Chrome T-shirts, buttons and hats up for sale. The color purple scattered throughout the crowd of almost 12,000. And then the moment came. It was all eyes on Chrome. It wasn't long before the disappointment struck as he fell to tie in fourth.

4: Injury: California Chrome is headed home to California with a special bandage on his right front foot after he bumped another horse leaving the starting gate in the Belmont Stakes. The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner had a chunk of flesh torn from his foot after bumping with Matterhorn, who was next to California Chrome in the gate Saturday.

5: CWS: The University of Louisville baseball team beat Kennesaw State Saturday, advancing to the College World Series for the second year in a row. The Cardinals took a 5-4 lead in the 5th inning off a two-run home run by freshman Nick Solak, which turned out to be the deciding factor. On Friday, Solak had a two RBI double in the 8th inning of Game 1, lifting the Cards to a 5-3 victory.

6: Snyder Shooting: Police are calling it an active investigation, but are not searching for an active shooter after a man was shot while driving on the Gene Snyder Freeway Saturday evening. Police are still searching for clues and would not confirm whether or not the shooting was random.

7: GOP: Three key Republicans -- including Kentucky's two U.S. senators -- stopped in Louisville on Saturday, seeking to grow the party's ranks. Sen. Rand Paul cut the ribbon at a new Republican field office in West Louisville, saying that it was an opportunity to take the party's message to people it has ignored.

8: Crash: Tony Adams, 43, of Louisville died of multiple traumatic injuries after being thrown from his motorcycle. He was not wearing a helmet, police said. The accident happened around 8:20 p.m. on June 6. Adams died less than an hour later at University Hospital.

9: Possession: Two football players from the University of Louisville and the University of Kentucky were cited for marijuana possession, according to court records. James Quick, a wide receiver for the Cardinals, and Jason Hatcher, a defensive end for UK, were cited the University of Louisville Police Department on May 26. The two were teammates at Trinity High School where they helped lead the team to 3 consecutive Class 6A state championships. Both were highly rated prospects coming out of high school.

10:  Cultural Pass: Children and students can visit some of the region's greatest cultural organizations for free this summer, thanks to the creation of the new Cultural Pass for Children that was suggested during the Vision Louisville initiative, Mayor Greg Fischer announced today.
