Glyshaw to Leave Training to Accept Indiana HBPA Post

Longtime Thoroughbred horseman and Indiana native Tim Glyshaw has been named the Indiana Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association executive director. Glyshaw assumes his position Feb. 1 and replaces Brian Elmore, who is retiring after six years in the job.

“We are very fortunate to find someone like Tim who has such a vast knowledge of the business to replace Brian Elmore,” said Joe Davis, president of the Indiana HBPA. “Brian has been very valuable to our organization, and his retirement leaves a big void for us. So finding someone to fill that position was a big task. Tim not only has experience from the perspective of a trainer, he is also an accomplished businessman. Meshing those two skills together will be a huge asset for us.”

Glyshaw, a native of Evansville, Ind., is a graduate of Indiana University with a degree in education. After teaching for two years, he made the move into Thoroughbred racing, working for trainer Robert Holthus before branching out on his own in 2004, racing primarily in Kentucky and Indiana.

“It’s been wonderful training, but I think it’s time to pursue other options,” explained Glyshaw. “The executive director position will allow me to still be involved in racing and hopefully do some good things for the members in Indiana. Brian has done so well and I’m eager for him to teach me about this position over the next few months. I’m very fortunate to have such a great mentor as I transition into this position.”

During his tenure in Indiana, he has campaigned two of the state’s top horses, Unreachable Star , who retired as the top Indiana horse ever and is still the richest Indiana-sired horse with $784,595 in earnings. He later conditioned two-time grade 2 winner Bucchero   to more than $947,000 in earnings, marking the richest Indiana-bred ever. Bucchero made two appearances in the Breeders’ Cup and is now a successful sire standing in New York. Glyshaw also earned a grade 1 win with Bullards Alley , who also competed in the 2017 Breeders’ Cup and completed his career with more than $928,000.

“I still have nine horses in training,” said Glyshaw. “Four of those are with Deerfield Farm, who has been with me from the start. We are currently stabled at the Churchill Downs Training Center and racing at Turfway. As we get closer to February, I’ll know when my last start is as a trainer before I step into my new role with the Indiana HBPA.”

Glyshaw will transition into that job in early 2024 alongside Elmore, who will fade out following the year’s first quarter. Elmore will assist in preparing Glyshaw for his numerous duties in the position.
