Edited Press Release

The Ed Brown Society announced six new Ed Brown Scholars on Tuesday evening at the Lyric Theatre & Cultural Arts Center during opening night of an art exhibit celebrating African American equestrians. The event was co-sponsored by the Ed Brown Society, Breeders' Cup Festival Week and Commerce Lexington.

Jaida Alee, a sophomore at the University of Kentucky majoring in Equine Science and Management; Chanler Robinson, a junior at Ohio State University majoring in Animal Science; Sophia Vega, a freshman at the University of Kentucky majoring in Animal Science; Harrison Goode, a junior at the University of Kentucky majoring in Equine Science and Management; Jeffrey Mitchell, Jr., a doctoral student at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine; and Deanira Smith, a doctoral student at the University of Arizona College of Veterinary Medicine were all recognized as Ed Brown Scholars for the remainder of the 2022-2023 academic year. Each Ed Brown Scholar was awarded a $3,000 scholarship and will gain industry exposure, training and experience, through the EBS career development program.

Chairman Greg Harbut said, “At the Breeders' Cup, many will place their wagers on who they believe will be the winners of world championship races. In that same spirit, the Ed Brown Society is making this investment in young people of color who are running strong academic races in pursuit of their equine careers, and we believe they will finish strong.”
