Owner Bio

My profession is that of a clinical psychologist but my passion is horses.  I started as a breeder of Quarter Horses for show in 1995, switching to Thoroughbreds for racing in 2004.  I had the privilege of owning and standing Texas City, a son of Mr. Prospector out of the Buckpasser mare, Miss Betty.  I currently own and am racing his son, Texas City Thor.  I also own a 2-year-old filly who is being started and two broodmares in foal to Scrimshaw.  Although I am very small as an owner, I love racing with a passion and hope to continue with this endeavor the rest of my life.
