Behind the Blue

Some stories require a little more – a little more discussion, more context, more depth and breadth. That’s the idea behind “Behind the Blue” – a weekly podcast created by UK Public Relations and Marketing. It is designed to explore through probing interviews the in-depth the stories that make UK the university for Kentucky and that have impact across the institution, the Commonwealth and, in some cases, the world.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 5, 2017) – The most exciting two minutes in sports brings horses, jockeys, celebrities and more from across the country and around the world to Louisville, Kentucky every year. While reporters and guests focus on big hats, bow ties, silks and mint juleps researchers at the University of Kentucky are interested in injuries.

One of the many benefits of a campus like UK’s is the ability to work across disciplines and specialties on research. So, when a physician at Keeneland approached Dr. Christian Lattermann about documenting jockey injuries Lattermann asked Dr. Carl Mattacola to work on the project with him, in partnership with the Jockeys’ Guild, to establish and grow a registry that can be utilized to look at injuries among professional jockeys.
