The Equine Research Hall of Fame, established by the University of Kentucky Gluck Equine Research Foundation, recognizes scientists who have distinguished themselves in the field of equine research.  Located in the Maxwell H. Gluck Equine Research Center in Lexington, Kentucky, the Hall of Fame was established to honor individuals who have dedicated their careers to expanding the body of knowledge of equine science through their contributions to basic or applied research.  The award provides a lasting tribute to renowned scientists from around the world and serves as an international forum for honoring top achievements in equine health research.
