Breeders’ Cup Week at Keeneland

Breeders Cup

Breeders’ Cup

Guest Blog by Rob Logsdon

Spending time the last week of October at the beautiful Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, KY is one of the highlights of my year. I visited a number of farriers during the week and shared coffee and donuts with them each morning at the FPD/Kerckhaert table.   The Breeders’ Cup week was a great week for Kerckhaert race plates, with the Legendary XT Fronts worn by three Breeders’ Cup winners. A total of 7 races were won by horses wearing Kerckhaert race plates on all fours. Other races featured horses winning with Kerckhaert Hind race plates.

Congratulations to farriers Steve Norman, Todd Boston, Joe Campbell, James Bickett and Jim Jimenez, who all shod Breeders’ Cup winners using Kerckaert Kings, Tradition and Legendary shoes.

The winner of our raffle for a Baldor 1/4 HP Buffer was Jim Bayes. Congratulations, Jim!

As always, Keeneland did a great job in handling the events for the week which culminated in the Breeders’ Cup World Championships and Breeders’ Cup Classic on Friday and Saturday, and the Horse sales held on the following Monday.
