Tom Hamm named Director of Stallion Nominations at Three Chimneys
Friday, July 6, 2018

Three Chimneys Farm announced today that seasoned veteran horseman Tom Hamm will assume the role of Director of Stallion Nominations to handle season sales and bloodstock activity at the farm.

With over 25 years of experience, Tom was first introduced to the business by his father, later becoming Assistant Trainer to his brother, Tim Hamm, a position he held for nearly 10 years. He began work at Taylor Made Farm in 2006 as Divisional Yearling Manager, and worked from 2011 to 2017 as General Farm Manager, with duties that included being the Sales Coordinator for all public sales.

Tom comes to Three Chimneys from Woodford Thoroughbreds where he served as General Manager of Breeding Operations. Prior to that he worked as Farm Manager at Mandy Pope's Whisper Hill Farm in Florida.

"Tom is a strong addition to the team at Three Chimneys," said Three Chimneys board member Doug Cauthen. "He knows the business, the players, and the horses, and is an extremely upbeat and positive people person. The business is about having quality stallions and then building relationships – Tom has the ability to make those connections and to help breeders reach their goals. I am confident that he and Rebecca Grabert-Nicholson will make a great team for the Three Chimneys' customers." 

Three Chimneys Chairman Gonçalo Torrealba added “Every person we asked about Tom couldn’t say enough positive things about his horsemanship, his great attitude and work ethic, and his integrity, so I am confident that we will go from strength to strength in his new role at Three Chimneys.” 

"What an exciting time at Three Chimneys. They campaigned Horse of the Year Gun Runner who just finished his first season at stud, and have Will Take Charge and Strong Mandate, who are both off to very strong starts. Add in Palace Malice, a Met Mile winner by Curlin and a super speedy son of Medaglia d'Oro in Fast Anna, both with yearlings this year, and you've got what I see as a very promising group of young stallions I can stand behind. And every successful stallion farm needs a rock solid proven sire like Sky Mesa. I am looking forward to the opportunity ahead," said Tom Hamm.
