Work History


Markin Farm (Family owned farm), Cincinnati, OH, Warnerton Farms, Batavia, OH

I grew up on a farm showing ponies and then horses (hunters & jumpers). I learned all aspects of horse care in the barn area as well as the show area. My riding instructor was Childress Rogers now of Milford, OH. Under her tutelage I won numerous blue ribbons and trophies and made a name for myself in the Cincinnati, OH area where a lot of my friends/acquaintances also showed horses on the same circuits.

After leaving the horse show circuit, I acquired employment at Warnerton Farms through the farm manager JTL Jones Jr. At the time of hire, I was asked by the farm manager to take 4 horses, condition them and run them at River Downs racecourse in Cincinnati, OH. During that season in 1972, the farm acquired more horses, thus increasing the racing enterprise (11 horses). My responsibilities were the management of the horses at the racetrack, insuring their conditioning, their proper care by hiring and managing competent staff to groom and care for them. The requisite veterinarian and horse shoe care. The season that year put Warnerton Farm on the map, from an unknown farm to a recognized farm.
