Wish her a “Fabulous Fiftieth” with a Gift for the Horses!
A Perfect Fit!
Kim’s early vivid memories of the racing industry include watching the horses work in the mornings at Del Mar. Her love of racing today owes much to the joy that she and her husband have found in the sport over their 20+ years together. Starting with a first date at Laurel racetrack in Maryland, Kim and her husband, Bobby, have been traveling to Saratoga for 20 years for the beauty, tradition and sport of racing. As enthusiastic supporters of racing, they’ve traveled the world to enjoy the majesty of the thoroughbred and the vibrant mix of people, places and animals that bring the sport to life. In March 2018, Kim and Bobby moved to Saratoga so that they might both pursue careers that they are passionate about while living in a town they love.
Starting on May 1, 2018 just a few days before the running of the 144th Kentucky Derby, Kim joined the TRF as the Director of Major Gifts and Planned Giving. In Kim’s own words, from her cover letter to TRF:
“I was born to help strangers become passionate about the things in which I believe and I believe whole-heartedly in the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation.”
Since 1983, the mission of the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation is clear and simply stated: To save thoroughbred horses no longer able to compete at the racetrack from possible neglect, abuse and slaughter.
