Kevin Latta of Irving, Texas, has purchased trainer Danny Vella's fractional interest in Hidden Brook Farm, announced partner Dan Hall.
Latta is the owner of Latta Construction, a worldwide construction company with offices in Irving and Baltimore, Md., that specializes in high-end commercial and residential projects. Latta, an Arkansas native and longtime Hidden Brook client, grew up in a family of horse racing enthusiasts and is an active owner and breeder.
"I am pleased and proud to become a part owner of Hidden Brook," Kevin Latta said in a release. "It's an opportunity to expand my passion and interest in an industry that I have been involved with my entire life. I have professional and personal relationships with the entire Hidden Brook team and look forward to working together to grow our business."
Partner Dan Hall added, "While I am sorry to see Danny move on, Kevin brings exceptional business acumen and new networking opportunities to the table. He's a great addition to our enterprise and we all look forward to working with him."
Woodbine-based Danny Vella will continue to train for Hidden Brook Racing and will remain active with the Paris, Ky., nursery in an advisory capacity.
