  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • South overwhelms Woodford in...

  • 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.
