The University of Kentucky (UK) Gluck Equine Research Foundation is calling for nominations for the Equine Research Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who have had distinguished careers in equine research.

The Hall of Fame is located at the UK Gluck Equine Research Center, in Lexington. It was established to honor those who have dedicated their careers to expanding the body of knowledge in some field of equine science through their contributions to basic or applied research. The Hall of Fame is a lasting tribute to those internationally renowned for their endeavors as equine researchers.

All nominations will be submitted to an international review committee comprised of current Equine Research Hall of Fame members, who will recommend to the Foundation’s Hall of Fame Committee nominees whom they consider qualified for this unique distinction. The UK Gluck Equine Research Foundation will announce those selected for induction.

Those eligible for consideration must have contributed very significantly to the field of equine research over an extended period. Nominees can be active researchers, retired, or deceased (posthumous award).

Nomination forms are available by contacting Jenny Evans at jenny.evans@uky.edu. Nominations must be submitted to Evans by e-mail no later than June 11.
