  • "Governor Steve Beshear has blocked the proposed merger between University of Louisville Hospital, Jewish/St. Mary’s Health System and Catholic Health Initiatives.

  • "At WinStar Farm, 2006 Kentucky Derby runner-up Bluegrass Cat has a road named after him near the stallion barn where, since 2007, he has been a leading sire of foals that go on to reach the racetrack. But this breeding season, the 9-year-old stallion will be doing stud service in New York instead of the Bluegrass. The move is being made because of a slots parlor that opened in the New York City area at Aqueduct Racetrack — generating revenue that will boost purses and likely result in more New York-bred foals that can run for slots-infused purses and breeders’ awards."
