Winding Creek Announces Keith Blackburn as Head Trainer




Winding Creek Stables, located in the heart of Kingston, Tenn., is proud to announce the hire of head trainer, Keith Blackburn. Terry and Judy Dotson built their stunning equine facility approximately 10 years ago. The family has since added to the farm and now have three beautiful indoor riding arenas.

Blackburn started his training career early on in life, winning his first world championship in 2002 about Gen’s Black Gin. Blackburn has since won several world championships with horses such as I’m NRA, Highly Addictive, How Bout Ya Cash and Jose’s Power Broker. Starting colts was also in his favor with horses such as Juke Walkin’ I’m Mayhem, Epic, Inception, Cash Date, Ebony’s Diamond Cutter, Facetime, Ritz’s Country Boy, Jose’s Tomboy, John Gruden being no strangers to the winner’s circle.

Blackburn is pleased to be a part of Winding Creek Stables, and both he and the Dotson family look forward to a great show season.
