Don and Irene Dizney’s Double Diamond Farm in Ocala, Fla., announced that Bob White has been named farm manager. White replaces longtime farm manager Jimmy Alexander, who will remain with the farm as an adviser.
“I am very excited to add Bob White to our team at Double Diamond Farm,” said Roger Brand, vice president and general manager of Double Diamond Farm. “Bob is extremely qualified for the farm manager position. I look forward to utilizing his experience and energy as we continue our high standard of equine care. I am also thrilled to be able to retain Jim Alexander in an advisory role. He has been an integral part of our program for a long time. His experience and history with Double Diamond have always been valued and appreciated and we’re excited that his affiliation with the farm will continue.”
White joins Double Diamond Farm from Taylor Made Sales where he had worked since 2006, most recently as a division manager responsible for mares, foals, weanlings, and yearlings. White’s extensive industry experience includes broodmare and farm management in Florida and Western Kentucky and as a racing official at Oaklawn Park, Hialeah Park and Louisiana Downs. A graduate of the University of Arizona Racetrack Management Program, White assumed his duties Jan. 2.
Double Diamond Farm is home to stallions First Dude and Bahamian Squall. First Dude was Florida’s leading sire of 2018 with progeny earnings of more than $4.9 million. He was represented by eight stakes winners last year, led by Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint winner and Eclipse Award finalist Shamrock Rose.
