  • Pratt: Sunrise on Derby Day

     LOUISVILLE - I’m a sucker for sunsets.

    The view from the front porch of my home in Tennessee is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. You could make a photo album of 365 sunsets in a year and be in awe of the view of each. But my dad has always said you’ll appreciate the sunrise more than the sunset. To follow that, I’ve been told a sunrise at Churchill Downs will take your breath away.

  • Pratt: First Oaks complete,...

    LOUISVILLE - You always hear stories about the infield. They say it’s a different world out there. When I sent a text to a friend of mine telling them I was on my way, they responded with “prepare yourself.”

    Once again, I showed my rookie cards and asked someone how to get to the infield. I find a security guard to ask how I get there.

    He smirked. Not a smirk like he thought I was an idiot, but a smirk that said “clearly you’ve never been here before.”

  • Pratt: A first-time perspective...

     LOUISVILLE - No one from Louisville is really from Louisville.

    That’s what I’m told by the bus driver at 7 a.m. on my way to Churchill Downs on Friday.

    He’s right in a sense. I’m not from here and neither was he. Neither were the other two media gentlemen I sat with at the front of the bus. I don’t know the bus drivers name, but I knew he wasn’t from around here by his accent.

  • ROUNDING THE BASES: Straker...

    CRESTWOOD - North Oldham and South Oldham are building a reputation of close contests. Despite getting 10 hits, the Mustangs struggled to bring them home in a 3-2 loss at South Wednesday night.

    South took advantage of three errors from North to win even with just two hits. Nathan Straker took the lead for good by stealing home with two outs in the bottom of the fifth inning.

  • Right for Ray: South Oldham...

     There wasn’t anything special about the pregame routine for the North Oldham and South Oldham girls lacrosse Tuesday evening in Goshen. South Oldham coach Bob Newton began announcing his team’s lineup. No surprises with the starters until he called got to the last name.

    “Hannah!” he shouted.

    And there was senior Hannah Ray. Standing near the outside of the huddle and like she had all season, not given any thought to her name in the lineup.
