Jay Goodwin is a new partner in Select Sales. The other members of the Lexington-based sales agency’s ownership team are Carrie Brogden, Tom Ryan, and Andrew Cary (general manager).
Goodwin is the owner of Good Win Farm, a boarding operation and sales agency near Paris, Ky. A native of Natchitoches, La., he graduated from Northwestern State University in 2001, and then founded and ran Good Win Farm from 2001-2005 in Arkadelphia, Ark. Goodwin was the farm manager for Liberty Farm from 2005-06 before relocating to Paris, Ky. and joining the staff at Brogden and her family’s Machmer Hall Thoroughbreds. After managing Machmer Hall for a year, Goodwin re-established Good Win Farm in 2007.
"Tom, Andrew, and Carrie are three up-and-comers in our industry and to be able to team up with them after seeing firsthand the excellent job they do at the sales is exciting and flattering,” Goodwin said. “I think we're going to have some great years ahead.”
"We are really happy to be bringing Jay on board as we enter our third year of operation," Brogden said. "He is a hands-on working and recruiting machine. He has a tremendous passion and enthusiasm for the business and has a growing client base that reflects his talent and diligence. We couldn't think of a better person to partner with, as he is young, energetic, has a thriving farm of his own, and already has years of experience in raising and selling commercial bloodstock."
