LEXINGTON, Ky, (Jan. 15, 2019)  Lloyd’s of London and the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment recently celebrated more than a quarter-century partnership in support of the horse industry. Representatives of Lloyd’s recently presented a $50,000 check to UK for continued funding of the international publication Equine Disease Quarterly.

“We are very pleased to be associated with the quarterly, an acknowledged source of very valuable information on issues of direct concern to equine stakeholders worldwide whether in performance, breeding or recreational sectors of the industry,” said U.S. Central Regional Director for Lloyd’s America Patrick Talley. “I am especially proud of the long-standing nature of the support Lloyd’s has provided and the commitment of Lloyd’s to ensuring the dissemination of up-to-date information on matters of equine health and welfare of value to equine industries around the world.”

“Lloyd’s of London insures much of the world’s most valuable bloodstock, and we are delighted to support the University of Kentucky and this publication, that enhances knowledge and horse welfare within the United States and worldwide,’’ said David Ashby, managing director and principal bloodstock underwriter with Amlin, and chair of Lloyd’s Livestock Committee.

The Equine Disease Quarterly is a joint publication of UK’s Department of Veterinary Science, the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory and the Maxwell H. Gluck Equine Research Center.
