At the Board of Directors’ meeting held Monday, July 18, the new board elected Kent Murray as president, Christine W. Holden as vice president and Michael Horning as secretary/treasurer.
Murray, a program manager for Northrop Grumman Corporation, grew up on his family's Murmur Farm in Darlington, and continues to serve the farm as a consultant and account manager. He and his wife, Donna, own Twin Oaks Farm, a boarding facility, in Aberdeen. 
Holden, general manager of Country Life and Merryland Farms, where she has worked since 2004, is serving her third term on the board after first being elected in 2018.
A retired insurance executive and current board member of the Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association, Horning was a presidential appointee to the MHBA board in 2018 and elected for a three-year term in 2019.
Richard F. Blue Jr, the prior MHBA president, was ineligible for reelection, due to having served six consecutive years on the MHBA board.
