(Video) Kentucky Derby 2012 - Florida Shippers

Behind scenes

It feels like I'm a recorder on repeat but it was another perfect morning in Louisville. This morning all the Florida shippers headed out to the track for a gallop. We also caught up with a couple other horses featured previously in my reports and got a glimpse of their gallop. Most impressive, to me, this morning was Gemologist. He seemed to really like the track. Union Rags was probably the second best looking out on the track followed by Take Charge Indy. Here's a glimpse of what my morning was like today out at Churchill Downs:


 

 

The life of a college student: I was up studying last night until 2:30 AM, was at Churchill from 5:30 AM-10:00 AM, back to school to take my final, then straight back over to the track to catch an afternoon of racing. If this isn't "living the dream," I don't know what is! We'll give you another report tomorrow morning! Until then, enjoy the Derby Fever!

Long story short, I took the long road getting involved in the industry. I did not get into horse racing until 2008 when I came to Louisville for college.

I'm originally from outside of Philadelphia and attend college at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky. Since I was 15 I was involved with working in radio and TV. I first covered horse racing at the 2011 Kentucky Derby and my passion just continues to grow. Let the early mornings begin and the Derby fever heat up as we hit the backside to get the exclusive stories leading up to the first Saturday in May.
