“I believe that Bob is the perfect fit for the needs of KEEP,” said Corey Johnsen, Chairman of KEEP. “He has a lifelong appreciation of the horse industry and has a sterling record of public service in the Kentucky General Assembly. His unique set of experiences will help us advance the interests of Kentucky’s signature industry.”

Heleringer is the author of Equine Regulatory Law, teaches Equine Regulatory Law at the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law at the University of Louisville and is a former racing official at thoroughbred racetracks in Kentucky and other states.

“I’m looking forward to working for KEEP, a true grassroots organization that represents every facet of Kentucky’s horse industry,” Heleringer said.

KEEP was formed to educate, inform and increase awareness of the benefits of Kentucky’s Horse economy to all citizens of the Commonwealth. Our goal is to promote and preserve jobs as well as create more economic opportunities within the equine industry in Kentucky.

As a leading agricultural product and a main catalyst for tourism in the state, the equine industry has an ongoing need to maintain the success it currently enjoys while also protecting and growing its for the future. KEEP reaches out to those who would like to become involved in fostering the industry’s ongoing contributions to the state’s economy.
