Price Bell, Jr. Named Mill Ridge Farm General Manager

Price Bell, Jr.

Price Bell, Jr. has been appointed to the position of general manager at Mill Ridge Farm. Upon completing his MBA from Vanderbilt's Owen School in 2010, Bell returned to Lexington and his life's passion, the Thoroughbred industry.

With conviction for the sport and believing in the great opportunity to develop the industry's fan base, he became actively involved with the founding of Horse Country, while assisting as a bloodstock agent for the Mill Ridge affiliate, Nicoma Bloodstock. He serves on the boards of the KTA-KTOB, TOBA, National Museum of Racing, Fayette Alliance, Amplify Horse Racing, and Horse Country.

Bell said it is a tremendous honor to work with the team at Mill Ridge, many of whom worked with his grandmother and 2020 National Museum of Racing's Hall of Fame inductee, Alice Chandler.

“In the summer of 1995, I began work at Mill Ridge Farm under the tutelage of the team responsible for raising generations of great Thoroughbreds. It is an honor to work with many team members from when I first started,” Bell said.

His father, Headley Bell, will continue on as Mill Ridge Farm, Managing Partner, a role he has enjoyed since 2008, as well as enhancing its affiliate, Nicoma Bloodstock, which he founded in 1979.

Since 2000, Mill Ridge Farm has raised and/or sold 35 Grade I winners. The affiliate, Nicoma Bloodstock, has led its clients to annexing Grade/Group 1 races including: (2) Arc de Triomphe, (2) Kentucky Derby, (1) Kentucky Oaks, (4) Breeders' Cup and (2) Horse of the Year titles in 40 years of service.
