Gemma Blumenshine | Gerry Dilger Equine Scholarship Foundation

Gemma Blumenshine is the recipient of the Gerry Dilger Equine Scholarship Foundation's annual scholarship to the Irish National Stud in conjunction with the Kentucky Equine Management Internship (KEMI), the board announced on Wednesday. Blumenshine's profile and strong work ethic impressed the board as the candidate who was most deserving of the unique experience and opportunity to be a part of the Irish National Stud program in 2022.

Blumenshine, who grew up in Clovis, California, majored in Animal Science and minored in Diary Industries at California Polytechnic State University. She started riding and competing in hunters and equitation from the age of 11 and had already gained experience in training, schooling and lessons. In addition, Blumenshine trains off-track thoroughbreds to jump. She most recently gained more work experience in the thoroughbred industry through her KEMI placement at Castleton Lyons.

Claire Dilger said, “We are so proud of Gemma and excited to see all she will accomplish! Thank you to all our donors, and those who help keep my dad's memory alive.”

Blumenshine said, “I am so lucky to be a part of KEMI and to be recognized with the Gerry Dilger Irish National Stud Scholarship and am so grateful to his family.”
