Tom Shehan

Residence: Hopkinsville, Kentucky

KHHA Director Since: Mid 90’s


Reason for running: “I was very interested in providing a voice for the horsemen in our state, and especially interested in doing anything possible to support county fair racing.”  

Tom first got involved in the industry when he married his wife, Karen, who owned a pacer at the time.  He has been actively involved in the industry in our state since as a successful owner, trainer, and breeder.  His son, Tyler, has taken over the training and driving duties for the family and competes across the state.
