‘Secret To Our Success’: Randy Matthews Stable Named ‘Barn Crew Of The Month’ At Indiana Grand

The Randy Matthews Stable is the recipient of the second “Barn Crew of the Month” of 2020 presented at Indiana Grand Tuesday, Sept. 22. The September honor was awarded to the Matthews team for their exemplary work in and around their shedrow and the overall appearance of their barn as well as their horses. The award is presented monthly by Indiana Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association (HBPA) as well as Texas Corral of Shelbyville, Ind.

Matthews, who is a native of southern Indiana, has been a staple on the backstretch at Indiana Grand for several years. In addition to his racing operation, he and his wife, Karen, also own a breeding farm in Greenville, Ind. He currently has 14 horses at Indiana Grand, including the undefeated Unbridled Beast, winner of the Gus Grissom Stakes last week.

Matthews was joined in the winner’s circle by three members of his team, Felix Villalta, Stephanie Vanderboom and Mauro Parra for the presentation following the first race. The crew received a $200 gift certificate to Texas Corral for a night out for the group.

“These guys are all good friends and they work well together,” said Matthews. “The secret to our success lies in them. They run a good ship for our stable.”

Texas Corral, located on Route 9 in Shelbyville, is partnering with Indiana HBPA for the third straight year for “Barn Crew of the Month.” The award was implemented by HBPA to showcase the hard-working members of the backstretch that take care of the horses daily with some recognition for their dedication to the sport.

Racing is held Monday through Thursday until Wednesday, Nov. 18. All-Quarter Horse racing is set for Saturday, Oct. 3 and Saturday, Oct. 24. For more information, go to www.indianagrand.com.
