It always bothered former University of Kentucky football player Oliver White that he left school a semester short of getting a degree. More than 30 years later, he’s back at UK as a student. His story bolsters a reform-minded professor’s idea of how the academic component in college athletics can be strengthened.
John Sensenig, who left a tenured professorship at UK to start Lexington’s first running shop 40 years ago, is selling the business to a longtime employee. At age 82 he is still running and coming in to help customers.
The storied Calumet Farm was established in Lexington, Ky. in 1924 by William Monroe Wright. Throughout the years the farm has had eight Kentucky Derby wins and two Triple Crown wins. The farm, which has not won a Derby since 1968, is currently seeing a resurgence in racing success. Calumet will have two, and possibly three, horses entered in this year's Run for the Roses.
