Case Clay, president and chief executive officer of Three Chimneys Farm, was named chair of the University of Kentucky Gluck Equine Research Foundation's board of directors at its October meeting. Art Zubrod, manager of Brittany Farm, was named vice chair.
"Being elected chair of the Gluck Equine Research Foundation means a lot to me, as my grandfather, Albert G. Clay, was one of the founders and a board chair. My father, Robert Clay, also served on the board," Clay said. "I will take this honor very seriously, and I am excited to work with the board to take the world's only research facility with the majority of faculty doing full-time equine research to the next level."
Clay joined the board in January 2010. He serves as a member of the Breeders' Cup and also serves on the boards of directors of Kentucky Equine Education Project (KEEP), the Federal Political Action Committee of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, and the Kentucky Derby Museum.
"I am excited to work closely with Case as the new chair of the Gluck Equine Research Foundation. Case comes with a great knowledge of the horse industry and experience on numerous boards. This combination will provide him with the tools to be a very effective leader for the Gluck Foundation," said Ed Squires, director of UK Ag Equine Programs and executive director of the Gluck Equine Research Foundation.
"Mr. Case Clay's leadership brings new enthusiasm combined with strong knowledge and experience from the horse industry to the Gluck Equine Research Foundation. I am looking forward to working with Case to navigate the Gluck Center through a new era of research that benefits the health and well-being of horses in Kentucky and around the world," said Mats Troedsson, director of the Gluck Equine Research Center and chair of the UK Department of Veterinary Science.
