Trainer Bio

I was born in 1969 in Cincinnati, OH. Following high school, I attended the University of Findlay Equestrian Program. I then ventured into the show horse world where I competed and was successful on a national level. I also became a certified horse show judge and did that for over 10 years. As recently as 7 years ago, I became a TB race horse owner, apprenticed with a couple of trainers and took out my trainers license late 2011. I am starting my third full year as a TB trainer. My stats at the Indiana Downs meet 2013 were the best to date with 30%  ITM. 

I am a very "hands on" trainer serving as my own groom and even ride the horses when at my farm. I am at the track everyday during the meet overseeing every aspect of the horses training/conditioning. The animals best interest is my utmost priority. I also feel an open line of communication between owner/trainer is vital in the success of each horse. I value owners opinions and feel we must work together in order to obtain the success we seek. Each horse has his/her own individualized program as I don't believe in  "cookie cutter" training methods. 

I am centrally located between Churchill Downs, Indiana Downs and Belterra Park(River Downs). I also run at Turfway and Ellis Park.

What's your normal use of veterinary services to manage horses on a day-today basis:
  • Aggressive ($700+ month/horse)
  • Moderate ($300 - $600 month/horse)
  • Occasional (less than $300 month/horse)
Comments:
I utilize veterinary care for the obvious pre-race medications. Other than that , I am very conservative on what is spent medically on the horse. Only if absolutely necessary and with an agreement with the owner will additional procedures be done.
Other than day rate, does your billing include charges for:
  • Veterinary
  • Blacksmith
  • Vanning
  • Travel
  • Other
How often do you communicate with Owners:
  • Daily
  • 2-3 times a week
  • Once a week
  • As needed
Comments:
I am a firm believer in an open line of communication between owner and trainer. I value their input and feel we need to work together in the best interest of the horse.
