Ben and Elaine Walden’s Pauls Mill announced Nov. 3 that Patrick Morell has been named director of sales at the Versailles, Ky. farm. Sandy Sanborn will stay on in stallion and farm office administration.
Patrick returns to Kentucky after two years as general manager at Pennsylvania’s Penn Ridge Farms. Prior to that he directed the sales of seasons and shares at Vinery Kentucky.
“I’ve been a big fan of Ben for years and now have the opportunity to benefit from his expertise on a daily basis,” said Morell in a statement. “What an exciting young roster of stallions he’s put together at Pauls Mill.”
Ben Walden added in a release, “Patrick is bright-eyed, strong in character, and completely sold out for the customer. Additionally, he has broader industry experience than anyone I have been privileged enough to hoist on deck.”
