Dr. Scott Hay has had a lifelong interest in both horses and veterinary medicine. His father is a retired veterinarian in Kansas who still raises and races American Quarter Horses. As a teenager, Scott competed in the roping events at local rodeos.
Dr. Hay graduated from the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1988 and joined Teigland, Franklin and Brokken later that year. In 1990, he became a full partner in the practice, and since 2004, he has served as its President and Managing Partner.
Dr. Hay is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Florida Veterinary Medical Association, and the Florida Association of Equine Practitioners. In 2008, he was elected to the Board of Directors of the American Association of Equine Practitioners. Dr. Hay also sits on the AAEP’s Professional Ethics and Conduct Committee and has served as the facilitator of the Purchase Examination at Public Auction Forum. Currently, Dr. Hay is also participating as a member of the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Advisory Committee.
His primary interests lie in lameness evaluations and purchase examinations. Dr. Hay particularly enjoys consulting with and advising clients on their potential purchases at thoroughbred auctions.
When not evaluating horses, Dr. Hay enjoys playing golf, raising his own horses (both Thoroughbred and Quarter Horses), and spending time with his wife, Darlene and their three daughters, Baylee, Lindsay and Kylee.
