Reasons why we’ve arrived at best time of the year in the Bluegrass State.
1. Big Triple comes in October.
Fall racing at Keeneland begins the 9th; Big Blue Madness at Rupp Arena, the 16th. And, a day later Rich Brooks’ team plays what could be a season-maker at Auburn.
2. Next week at historic Churchill Downs, filming starts on a motion picture about Secretariat.
3. Hot seat. What college season would be complete without a coach on one? Steve Kragthorpe at Louisville is the man. Is Western’s David Elson next?
