Governor Steve Beshear was one of the many Kentuckians worried for the 120 runners in this year's Boston Marathon who call Kentucky home. He called the events in Boston a tragedy.

Cities across the country stepped up security following the events in Boston. Here in Kentucky, Gov. Beshear said it heightens the concern for big public events, including the Kentucky Derby.

Governor Beshear said, "We're going to be working with our state and federal partners and Churchill Downs and the Derby Festival just to make sure we're doing everything right and everything we can do from a security standpoint to make sure that all of our folks are going to be safe during all those festivities."
