UofL’s equine program seeks Galbreath award nominations

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Nominations are open for the 29th annual John W. Galbreath Award, which recognizes outstanding entrepreneurship in the equine industry.

The University of Louisville College of Business Equine Industry Program has given the award annually since 1990 to honor entrepreneurial leadership that has had a significant and positive impact on the equine industry.

Past recipients have included Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas, former Churchill Downs President and CEO Thomas H. Meeker and renowned equine veterinarians William Rood and Thomas Riddle. Last year’s winner was Roberts Communication Network founder Todd Roberts.

The award is named for the late John W. Galbreath, the visionary owner of Darby Dan Farm in Lexington and former Churchill Downs chairman who distinguished himself as both a businessman and a horseman.

The deadline for nominations is Sept. 5. The winner will be announced in the fall and honored at a dinner in Louisville.
