Kelsey Marshall Hughes has been elected to the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation (TRF)'s board of directors. Hughes is vice president of partner relations for Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners. The New Yorker was honored with the Katherine McKee Administration Award sponsored by Keeneland as part of the 2021 Thoroughbred Industry Employee Awards.

“I have had the pleasure of knowing Kelsey for a number of years and am thrilled that she has agreed to serve on our board,” said Patrick Mackay, TRF's president and chairman. “She is totally committed to Thoroughbred aftercare and the TRF is extremely lucky to have someone of her caliber furthering our mission.”

The TRF board provides leadership for carrying out TRF's mission to provide sanctuary for retired racehorses no longer able to compete on the racetrack and to save them from possible neglect, abuse, and slaughter.
