Case Clay, head of of Three Chimneys Farm, elected chair of Gluck Equine Research Foundation at UK

Case Clay, president and chief executive officer of Three Chimneys Farm near Midway, has become board chair of the University of Kentucky's Gluck Equine Research Foundation.

Clay told UK news writer Jenny Evans that his elevation “means a lot to me, as my grandfather, Albert G. Clay, was one of the founders and a board chair. My father, Robert Clay, also served on the board. I will take this honor very seriously, and I am excited to work with the board to take the world's only research facility with the majority of faculty doing full-time equine research to the next level.”

Clay joined the board almost three years ago. He was elected chair at its October meeting, succeeding Walter Zent, a veterinarian and former partner at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute. The foundation supports the work of the Gluck Center, where UK faculty conduct research in genetics and genomics, infectious diseases and immunology, musculoskeletal science, parasitology, pharmacology/toxicology and reproductive health.

“Case comes with a great knowledge of the horse industry and experience on numerous boards. This combination will provide him with the tools to be a very effective leader for the Gluck Foundation,” said Ed Squires, director of UK Ag Equine Programs and executive director of the foundation.
