  • Mathis strikes out 15 against...

    Working with little margin for error, South Oldham senior left-hander Eddie Mathis was spectacular Monday night.

    Mathis struck out 15 Shelby County batters as the Dragons beat the Rockets 1-0 in Shelbyville.

    The Bellarmine signee allowed Shelby just four hits over seven innings of work.

    Tanner Johnson drove in the only run for the Dragons (16-9), who will play Friday night at Pleasure Ridge Park.
     

  • Oldham-connected horses come up...

    LOUISVILLE – While Commanding Curve, ridden by Goshen’s Shaun Bridgmohan, placed in Saturday’s Kentucky Derby, two other horses with county connections didn’t run as well this weekend.

    Kiss Moon, bred by Hermitage Farm in Goshen, finished 12th out of 12 horses Friday in the Kentucky Oaks.

    One day later Ride on Curlin, whose owner, Dan Dougherty, has family in Oldham County, came home seventh in the Derby.

  • Goshen’s Bridgmohan 2nd in Derby

    LOUISVILLE – No one came close to California Chrome Saturday in the Kentucky Derby.

    But pacing the rest of the field was Commanding Curve with an Oldham Countian aboard.

    Goshen resident Shaun Bridgmohan rode long shot Commanding Curve to a second­-place finish at Churchill Downs, Bridgmohan’s highest finish in six career Derby starts.

    Commanding Curve, who went off from the No. 17 post at 38-­1, finished 1 ¾ lengths behind champion California Chrome and 1 ¼ lengths clear of third-­place Danza.

  • Chuck Harper: Dreams come true...

    Many of us witnessed the outcome of Kentucky Derby Saturday.

    The owners of the winner, California Chrome, Perry Martin and Steve Coburn, say they knew they had the winner the day the colt was foaled.

    They were called many things the day they proclaimed the horse of their dreams would be something very special, including the moniker “dumb ass!”

    That’s the day that DAP Stables (Dumb Ass Partners) was born. They even decided to put a donkey on their silks.

  • District 4 Boys Lacrosse: OC...

    BUCKNER – A breakthrough season for Oldham County lacrosse will continue at least two more games.

    Last month OC beat North Oldham 16-15, marking the program’s first win against a county opponent. The Colonels beat the Mustangs for the second time Tuesday, only this time with much more on the line.

    OC came back from a 5-2 hole to beat North 9-7 in the first round of the District 4 Tournament. With the win, the Colonels advance to the district championship Thursday at home against top-seed South Oldham.

  • North baseball mauls Manual

    GOSHEN – North Oldham broke a losing streak by pouring it on DuPont Manual Monday.

    The Mustangs took a 6-0 lead, then scored nine runs in the fifth inning to beat the Crimsons 15-0 on North’s senior night.

    North’s 15 runs marked its highest run output of the season. The double-digit explosion came on the heels of a four-game stretch in which the Mustangs had scored five runs total, losing all four games.

  • Bridgmohan rides to second in...

    LOUISVILLE – No one came close to California Chrome Saturday in Kentucky Derby 140.

    But pacing the rest of the field was Commanding Curve with an Oldham Countian aboard.

    Goshen resident Shaun Bridgmohan rode longshot Commanding Curve to a second-place finish at Churchill Downs, Bridgmohan's highest finish in six career Derby starts.

  • California Chrome leaves no...

    LOUISVILLE – Critiques of California Chrome were spoken ever since the 3-year-old colt arrived at Churchill Downs Monday morning.

    There were questions as to how the Santa Anita Derby winner would handle being out of California for the first time, how he'd do on a track where he'd never raced, how he'd react to racing in a 19-horse field.

  • Untapable romps, Kiss Moon last

    LOUISVILLE – Untapable was unstoppable Friday.

    She cruised to a 4 ½ length win over second-place My Miss Sophia, third-place Unbridled Forever and nine other 3-year-old fillies in the Longines Kentucky Oaks 140 at Churchill Downs.

    Untapable became the second Oaks winner in the careers of trainer Steve Asmussen, jockey Rosie Napravnik and owner Winchell Thoroughbreds.
