2017 Wall of Fame Honoree

Vicki Humphrey Oliver ’91

Vicki Humphrey Oliver is an accomplished Thoroughbred trainer based at Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky. Her North American career earnings exceed $10 million with 230 wins through 2017. She grew up with horses on her parents’ Shawnee Farm near Harrodsburg, KY. Before starting work at the race track, Vicki rode show horses in her youth and as a student at Stoneleigh-Burnham. She then attended Wittenberg University and majored in Sociology with a minor in Business. Her early professional career began with summer work for a blacksmith and veterinarian. She then worked for the King Ranch and for horse trainer Elliot Walden. Vicki, who gallops many of her own horses, is usually well acquainted with the runners in her care. Such was the case with Frivolous, who won the 2014 Falls City (G2) and 2015 Fleur De Lis (G2) at Churchill Downs.
