(Edited press release)
Los Angeles County Fair officials have named Kim Lloyd to the position of equine manager at Fairplex Park in Pomona, Calif.
Lloyd has a long history with the equine business having served as vice president of sales at Barretts Equine Limited since 2006, a position he will retain. His first picture in a winner’s circle was as an infant in the arms of his grandfather, who was a trainer. Following that lead, Lloyd has conditioned horses in California since 1984.
In his role at Fairplex, Lloyd will oversee the annual L.A. County Fair’s racing meet, horse shows, and all training and inter track wagering operations conducted at the track.
