Jimmy Takter got involved very early in the life of EquineX. In the summer of 2018, just prior to his retirement from day to day training of Standardbred horses, Jimmy saw an opportunity to play a new role in the equine industry that extends beyond Standardbreds. Jimmy recognized that horse racing needs to attract new and younger owners, which will only be possible if the industry collectively addresses the “integrity” issues that have inherently and adversely affected the industry for decades. Jimmy’s belief is, that advancements in technology, such as the micro-chipping of horses, is the natural, logical and best solution to addressing these issues. EquineX is proud to have Jimmy as a founder and partner of the Company and believes that his expertise transcends the Standardbred segment of the equine industry into all others.
