1st - Ostrolenka 2nd - Noble Cornerstone 3rd - Weekend Hideaway I love Saratoga racing.
Awesome Slew. Great trip in the Sanford. This horse shows some "Awesome" promise. Can't wait to see this horse running a mile or more. Love this Florida Horse!
Actually I think he has a great chance at being second. In fact him and Photoshop will be lengths apart of the rest of the field at the wire if class holds true to form
First start of career was a win in a stakes race.
Both turf and dirt pedigree on both sides. I like this one.
Im keeping an eye on this colt!
Wheres Captain Picard!?
This horse is a beast!
I wanted Sharp Sensation , hopefully he can come back as a Longshot in the Al Vanderbilt Hcp. Amelia 's Wild Ride also has a good future .
Where is he running this weekend he also entered Curlin.
did they change silk colors?

Meet Kevin Kerstein 

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.
