Esteemed award is an international forum celebrating noteworthy achievements in equine research and individuals who have significantly impacted equine health.

The winners include Lisa Fortier, DVM, PhD, DACVS; Katrin Hinrichs, DVM, PhD; Jennifer Anne Mumford, DVM; and Stephen M. Reed, DVM. The scientists were nominated by their fellow peers and past awardees. Nominees may be living or deceased, active in or retired from the field of equine research. “In research, we always stand on the shoulders of those who go before us with great discoveries. This year’s recipients have made substantial contributions that will ensure an excellent future for equine research,” expressed Nancy Cox, UK vice president for land-grant engagement and College of Agriculture, Food and Environment dean, in a university release. “The success of Kentucky’s horse industry is inseparable from the decades of hard work by outstanding equine researchers,” added Stuart Brown, chair of the Gluck Equine Research Foundation. “Though impossible to measure, it is a unique privilege to recognize the impact made by these four scientists in advancing the health and wellbeing of the horse and, on behalf of the entire equine community, show our appreciation.”
