PWF October 1st Meeting
The Equine Industry: From Foal to the Track
With Keeneland having their fall meet in October, PWF wanted to focus the program on the equine industry. What happens from the time the foals are running with their mammas in the pasture to when they are running on the race track? Two speakers who are very familiar with the industry will be our presenters.
Beth Wofford of Rimroc Farm has been in the thoroughbred industry her whole adult life. She has firsthand knowledge of just about every facet from breeding to foaling to starting young horses under saddle to the race track. At Rimroc Farm they have 7 full or part time employees and train between 15-25 horses daily. She and her husband have owned the farm since 1976 and are intimately familiar with all aspects of the race horse business.
Carrie Gilbert originally from Rochester, New York, has called Central Kentucky home since 2000. She grew up riding hunter/jumpers and Arabians. She graduated from the University of Kentucky in 2005 with a degree in Equine Business Management. Currently she is employed by a private, international thoroughbred racing operation, Flaxman Holdings, and is the racing, sales, and stallion coordinator.
