When in Kentucky, do Kentucky things! The West Coasters have landed in the Bluegrass State and are soaking up the sights of Lexington and the surrounding area while their horses get adjusted and relax before the big competition begins in just a few days time. Lauren Billys, Erin Kellerhouse, Emilee Jakobi and Bill Olson, Emilee’s groom/BFF, got a real treat in visiting Coolmore America at Ashford stud where they got to mingle with Triple Crown winners American Pharoah and Justify.

As we are full steam ahead into Kentucky next week, we’re looking forward to bringing you our famous EN coverage in a whole new way. Early next week, we’ll be launching the first-ever EN Ultimate Form Guide to Kentucky, available as a download for a small fee. We’re also launching the LRK3DE Daily Digest (click here to sign up – it’s free!), a daily email sent out early each morning during competition full of coverage links, predictions, giveaways/contests, and more. Finally, it’s a great time to become an EN Patreon supporter – we’ll be doing some exclusive content in our private Facebook group just for Patrons all week long.
