W. Cothran “Cot” Campbell, Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Famer and originator of the Racehorse Syndication, will be the guest speaker on Wednesday, March 21, at 7 p.m. in N126 Allgood Hall.
Campbell, who currently resides in Aiken, is the president of Dogwood Stable, one of the nation’s leading Thoroughbred racing stables. He also is the author of three books, Memoirs of a Longshot, Rascals and Racehorses (2002), and Lightning in a Jar (2000).
Horse racing has been in his family for generations, his grandfather Dick Cothran was an original member of the New Orleans Jockey Club. Campbell has introduced more than 1,200 people to racing, and Dogwood has purchased more than a $100 million in bloodstock.
The stable has campaigned more than 70 stakes winners, and competed in ten Triple Crown races–with a win (Summer Squall’s Preakness victory in 1990), a second place and two thirds. There have been two champions and six millionaires.
