Prosser announced as Keeneland European representative

FORMER Racing Post sales reporter Ed Prosser will succeed Tim Preston as Keeneland's European representative from July 1, Keeneland announced on Friday.

Preston is retiring from the position after 23 years.

"Keeneland is tremendously proud of its strong ties to Europe, and the rich history we share with its horsemen," said President-Elect Bill Thomason. "We welcome Ed to the Keeneland family, and look forward to his support in continuing to build on that legacy.

"At the same time, we express our thanks to Tim Preston for his many years of service during which he helped Keeneland cultivate loyal friendships and explore new avenues of growth with our European partners."

In addition to reporting for the Racing Post, Prosser has spent the past 15 years commentating on the European sales scene for other publications such as Thoroughbred Owner & Breeder and Horse & Hound. He will continue as a director of the London-based Racenews.

Prosser is also a racehorse owner and breeder.

"It is a privilege to be asked to join the team at Keeneland, a company that has long been held in the highest regard throughout the bloodstock and racing worlds," said Prosser. "European visitors have been synonymous with Keeneland's success through much of its history and I look forward to helping continue that longstanding association."
