In Memory of Jim Powell

Jim Powell

Residence: Mackville, Kentucky

KHHA Director Since: Early 80’s


Reason for running: “I would like to promote racing in our state on a grassroots level and get more people interested as a sport to ensure our industry continues to exist.”

Jim was introduced to the sport through family, as well as his dad's roadsters when he was growing up.  He has been actively involved in the standardbred industry as a successful owner and breeder in the state for over 40 years.
