When you're watching the Kentucky Derby later today you may recognize a familiar voice. The track announcer for the 2015 Kentucky Derby is a Oneonta graduate from the class of 2006, Travis Stone. 

“If you’re a sportscaster you want to be on the mike for the Super Bowl or the World Series,” Stone says about his new gig. “It’s pretty remarkable to think that I’ll be calling the Kentucky Derby – and a little bit overwhelming. I’ve been very lucky, had a lot of support, and worked hard at it.”"

Stone has wanted to be a track announcer since he was a little boy, and today he will announce the Super Bowl of horse races. Learn more about Travis's journey here.

Post time for the 2015 Kentucky Derby is approximately 6:24PM and will be broadcast live on NBC. You can also watch online for free here.
