Kimberly Godwin Clark

Kimberly Godwin Clark has always had a passion for Thoroughbreds. For 25 years Clark galloped, trained and owned Thoroughbred racehorses at Maryland Tracks. She learned to gallop under the tutelage of the great steeplechase rider John Bosley and then went on to the track with Ann Merryman a second generation horseman. Riding at Old Hilltop, Pimlico Racecourse in Baltimore, Maryland for most of her riding career, Kimberly also rode in Florida for several winters before settling at Leighton Farm in Upper Marlboro, Maryland to begin her new venture in retraining retiring racehorses for new careers in 2007. To achieve success in this new venture, she enlisted the guidance of James C. Wofford whom she has worked with regularly since 2008. She then added David Loman at Jim’s suggestion in 2010. She continues to work regularly with Linda Zang, Stephen Bradley, Todd Bryan and Jim. Her training program is based on knowledge she has gained from a lifetime of working with Thoroughbreds racehorses and now the incredible guidance she receives from each horse that comes through the Leighton Farm program. “I focus on the fundamentals of relaxation, balance, straightness and rhythm creating a solid foundation for any discipline.” Kimberly and Leighton Farm have a special commitment to Thoroughbreds, exhibiting a benevolent passion for them by creating the charity organization, Thoroughbred Placement Resources, Inc. In order to aid these retired racers the 501(c)(3) charity, Thoroughbred Placement Resources, Inc. was created and has grown to transition an average of 35 Thoroughbreds per year at Leighton Farm under Godwin Clark’s direction. Since 2008, TPR has found homes for nearly 1000 retired Thoroughbred racehorses.
