Name a Maryland Thoroughbred Contest winner: Karen Deal - Maryland Horse Breeders Association

Karen Deal, a lifelong Maryland resident with a love of horses, is the winner of the Maryland Horse Breeders Association's Name a Maryland Thoroughbred Contest, which was hosted at this year's 2019 Jim McKay Maryland Million Day! As the winner, Karen will work with Wasabi Ventures Stables to name their weanling colt currently nicknamed "Mousse," a son of Great Notion out of Magical Point that currently resides at St. Omer's Farm in Forest Hill. 

Attending Maryland Million for the first time this year, Karen is looking forward to her involvement with Wasabi Ventures Stables and learning more about Maryland's Thoroughbred industry.

"As a lifelong Maryland resident, I'm an alumni from the University of Maryland, College Park and have two wonderful children who are also alumni. In addition, I've worked at UM for over 30 years in Business, Finance, and Human Resources. I adore horses but have never owned or named one, but my father has worked with horses and my grandfather owned the Red Top Riding stable that was once located in Hyattsville, MD. I was often taken to see and ride horses as a child and that sparked my interest and love of horses. I'm excited about this opportunity and look forward to learning more about horses!"
