Hoskins Files for Kentucky Senate Seat



Todd Hoskins, 39, of Liberty, Ky., has filed for the 15th District State Senate seat in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Todd is a 1994 graduate of Eastern Kentucky University and now works with his father, Jerry Hoskins, in their family-owned Kentucky Farm Bureau Insurance business.    

The Hoskins family has very active in the Tennessee Walking Horse business for many years. Todd and his younger brother Clay both showed at the Celebration as youth and their sister, Rachyl, was crowned Celebration queen not long after being crowned Miss Kentucky. The family owned the horses reserve world grand champion “Eb’s Black Charger” and multiple world champion “Cheatin’ Danger”. Todd’s father, Jerry Hoskins, was instrumental in helping the walking horse industry get industry restrictions lifted back in the late 1980’s through the help of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.   

Hoskins says, “There has never been a more important time to elect leaders that understand the issues that affect the horse industry. I have always said there is no one that cares more about the welfare of the animals we all love than the owners and trainers. I will work to do everything in my power to work the industry to build a fair system that we can all operate under. I know my dad, Jerry Hoskins, values the many lifetime friendships he has made through the years. We would be greatful for any support our friends could provide in winning this very important State Senate race. Anyone wishing to support our cause can go to toddhoskins2012.com and get more information.”
