Walker Hancock

Just 24 when he took over as the head man at Claiborne, Walker Hancock not only understands and appreciates the Claiborne tradition, but he is the right age to lead the iconic breeding and racing operation into a future that is filled with new ideas, new concepts and new challenges. Now 27, Hancock has already made his mark by bringing the stallions Runhappy and Ironicus to Claiborne for the 2017 breeding season. In this week’s TDN podcast, Bill Finley touches base with one of racing’s brightest young leaders.
