LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – With the Kentucky Derby tomorrow, let’s table the pedigree and morning works talk and talk about the finer details of producing a champion on the track…right down to the feed.

But it helps to have science on your side.

That’s where Kentucky Equine Research comes in; doing it at the highest level.

KER has served at six Olympics and the World Equestrian Games as the Official Equine Nutritionist and will be in Tryon, North Carolina later this year for WEG once again.

It’s yet another horse industry gem right here in Central Kentucky.
