  • South overwhelms Woodford in...

    CRESTWOOD – South Oldham took nearly two quarters to get dialed into its final postseason tune-up Wednesday night.

  • OC finishes first spring under...

    BUCKNER – Oldham County’s spring football game Friday night was a good teaching tool for new coach Mike Shatzer.

    The White Team trailed 12-0 at halftime after two touchdowns by the Blue Team’s Isiah Kelly in the first half.

    “We told them at halftime, you could either do what you used to do and hang your head and succumb to defeat, or you can play hard the second half and see what happens,” Shatzer said.

  • North introduces new volleyball...

    GOSHEN – When North Oldham volleyball coach Brian Jones left for Union College earlier this year, the school also looked to the college ranks to find his replacement.

    The school hired Brett Versen, an assistant at James Madison University and former All-American player at Ohio State.

    Versen was introduced to parents and players Monday night, saying he’s ready to hit the ground running with a Lady Mustang program that lost just two seniors off last year’s team, the District 29 champion and Region 8 runner-up.

  • Ride on Curlin gives local...

    LOUISVILLE – Things seem to add up in threes for Ride on Curlin.

    The day owner Dan Dougherty, his son and trainer “Bronco” Billy Gowan picked out the colt at the 2012 September Keeneland sale, their lunch bill was $33.33.

    Later that afternoon they paid $25,000 for the son of two-time American Horse of the Year Curlin and Magical Ride, with a Hip No. 3033.

    This spring he raced in three graded stakes at Oaklawn Park, finishing in the top three in each one.

  • Chuck Harper: Wicked karma in...

    A year ago, it appeared destiny pushed Derby 139 winner Orb down the stretch in the slop to give trainer Shug McGaughey his first Derby victory.

    This year it seems karma, destiny and fate’s cousins, could play a large role in the outcome.

    Also about a year ago Boston ran its version of the Derby, the Boston Marathon.

    The Boston terrorist attacks were another American tragedy that awoke a sleeping giant.

    It most certainly awoke Don Little Jr., the owner of Centennial Farm in Boston.
