Knowlton Among Speakers at TOBA Owners' Seminar

Jackson Knowlton of Sackatoga Stable, which owns Kentucky Derby winner Funny Cide, will be a featured speaker May 16 at the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association New and Prospective Owners Seminar at Pimlico Race Course.

The clinic will offer an intense half-day program covering several aspects of Thoroughbred ownership. Topics to be covered include accounting and tax issues (Mark King and Jeff Drake of Naden/Lean), (Tony Attaino), The Greatest Game (Gay Fisher), an owner's perspective (Knowlton), selecting a trainer (A. Ferris Allen III), veterinary topics (Dr. Nick Meittines), and conformation evaluations (Kip Elser of Kirkwood Stables and Allen).

The seminar will begin at 8 a.m. on the fourth floor of Pimlico's grandstand and conclude with a visit to the backstretch for conformation evaluations. Lunch and grandstand seating for the 12-race card, including the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes and the Pimlico Special, will be provided.
