Stuart Brown, DVM, a veterinarian and partner at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute, in Lexington, Kentucky, was named chair of the University of Kentucky (UK) Gluck Equine Research Foundation’s board of directors at its January meeting. Michael Banahan, director of farm operations for Godolphin LLC’s Jonabell Farm, also in Lexington, was named vice chair.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to serve the Gluck Equine Research Foundation and to work with the leaders in the horse industry who are members of the foundation’s board and engaged in the mission of the Gluck Center’s commitment to the advancement of equine health,” Brown said. “The Gluck Center has an international reputation of excellence in the area of equine research and remains a vital resource for the horse industry, both locally and globally, in addressing the needs of the industry’s stakeholders. I look forward to collaborations with this esteemed faculty, led by Dr. David Horohov (PhD), and to furthering its accomplishments as we approach the 30th anniversary of this unique institution. I cannot envision a more tangible way to contribute to our horse industry than through contribution to this partnership with the University of Kentucky and its College of Agriculture, Food and the Environment.”

Brown joined the board in January 2011 and has served as vice chair since January 2012. Brown specializes in equine reproduction with a primary focus on broodmare reproductive evaluations, purchase evaluations including radiographic and endoscopic examinations for horse sales at public auction, herd health preventive medicine and primary care, and federally required testing for the international equine import and export. Brown frequently consults on national and international cases and regularly speaks at various veterinary and horse owner conferences. He also serves on numerous national veterinary and Thoroughbred industry boards and committees
