There were times last spring when all Kevin Kahkola could see from his vantage point located near the finish line at the Camden Training Center’s mile-long main track was the sight of Mohaymen and stablemate Shagaf thundering in his direction during an early morning breeze. What the Shadwell Stable trainer would not give to see that same sight, only to have 18 other horses chasing his two former residents’ shadows come the May 7 Kentucky Derby. When the expected field of 20 horses takes to the Churchill Downs track to the strains of “My Old Kentucky Home” next Saturday, one-tenth of the field will be graduates of Shadwell Stables.
