The Kenton County police department's video of an officer's collision with a deer has generated national and international notice. The department posted the video on Facebook and emphasized how the officer involved was able to maintain control of the police car because he "applied his brakes and steered away from the deer in a controlled manner." The officer wasn't injured and damage to the car was minimal considering the impact. The deer also appeared unharmed.
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.
