Former WinStar Farm broodmare manager Jeff Danford has been named farm manager at Pin Oak Stud near Versailles, Ky. The farm was sold earlier this year to Jim and Dana Bernhard after the passing of Josephine Abercrombie this January.

“Leaving WinStar was a difficult decision and I want to thank Kenny and Lisa Troutt for all they have done for me over the past nine years,” said Danford. “I am excited about this new opportunity and am thankful to Jim and Dana Bernhard for trusting me with the duties at Pin Oak. Pin Oak has such a great history and it is an honor to be part of this new chapter.”

Prior to his time at WinStar, Danford had also been at Overbrook Farm, Starwood Farm, Margaux Farm, and Crestwood Farm. Originally from Southern Illinois, he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture from Missouri's Truman State University.
