Tom Hamm has joined Woodford Thoroughbreds as General Manager of Breeding Operations.

"Tom is a great addition to our team and will be a huge asset to our company," said Matt Lyons, Vice President of Woodford.

Hamm was a police officer from 1991-1995. He married his wife Amy in 1993, and they have three daughters: Alyssa, Haylee, and Olivia.  He began working in the Thoroughbred industry in 1995 as an assistant trainer before joining Taylor Made farm in 2006 as a divisional yearling manager. Hamm then became General Farm Manager in 2011.

This past June, Hamm moved to Florida to be Farm Manager at Whisper Hill Farm. With their two eldest daughters still living in Kentucky, Tom and Amy made the decision to return to the Bluegrass state and accept the position at Woodford.  

"Tom is a strong family man and someone that really fits our culture at Woodford. We look forward to his input as we continue to grow," said Lyons.
