Gone in 50 Seconds: Fox41 got its hands on more evidence in the Karen Sypher case. The station played a tape of some of the :50 of phone calls from Lester Goetzinger to the Coach Rick, in which Goetzinger threatens to go public with info that somehow, is still not public. Fox41 was able to use more of its infamous original Sypher interview footage, and to stamp the story with its “Only on Fox” banner. She may get a new attorney on Friday. [Fox41]

Horses on Film: KET is producing a documentary called “Thoroughbred.” Yes, it’s about horses, and includes film shot from Kentucky to Dubai. Set to air next spring, and produced by Academy Award winner Paul Wagner, the 90-120 minute film will focus on all aspects of the thoroughbred industry. [KET]

Jockeys on Film: On Aug. 21, Animal Planet will start airing seven new one-hour episodes of its reality series on jockeys, called “Jockey.” Jockeys Guild manager Darrell Haire is a key player in the project, which will include footage from this year’s Derby. The first episodes aired early this year. As reality series go, this one had tremendous production values and let’s just say was more entertaining than Southern Belles. We’ll have more on this in August. [Animal Planet]

Belles on Line: Southern Belle Shea Johnson has developed a large following of fans upset about the whole “Jeff dumped me for Katie King” business, and one of them in Maryland started a Facebook page called ANTi – Katie King (The Honorable). It’s picked up nearly 300 fans in a day. You’ll have to look it up.

Exaggerated Death: Ellis Park has asked the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission for more racing dates, which tells you that reports of the Henderson’s track’s demise may have been premature.  [Henderson]

Remember Parente?: You know, that excruciatingly energetic guy who used to host WAVE 3′s morning call-in show. Well, he moved to Denver a few years back and is trying to win the vote to co-host the Regis and Kelly show for a day next month. You can vote for him. [Vote]

Trading Places: As long as we’re focusing on the lighter side of the news and the people who bring it, you might find the feature on WHAS-TV’s Rachel Platt and Andy Treinen interesting, in an Entertainment Tonight kind of way.  The anchors spend a day with each other’s kids. Treinen had more fun. [WHAS-TV]

    Maybe Ellis should come up with a winter NIGHT harness meet. To run with daytime racing at Turfway.

    Gee, thank God that the slots bill passed and Ellis Park has emerged from the brink of ruin, oh wait, the bill didnt pass, so what happened Ellis Park, did you find some hidden money somewhere, or were you and the rest of the horse industry circle jerking us just to get the monoply on all of the slot money for yourself? Guess what, the next bet I make now will not be at your track, or any other track in Kentucky, I dont like people who try to hold guns to peoples head to get what they want, they used to call that robbery,I will now for sure place my money across the river for sure! Shame on all of you lying Bas**rds!

    bill, I would use the phrase “political extortion” to describe what the tracks were trying to do, along with their corporate stenographers at WHAS-11 and other media outlets.
