Macfarlane Ferguson & McMullen is proud to announce that Stella Ferguson Thayer was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame as a Pillar of the Turf. A Tampa native, Stella F. Thayer’s keen-sighted guidance has elevated Tampa Bay Downs to a position of prominence within the Thoroughbred racing industry. Along with the seven other members of the Hall of Fame’s Class of 2023, Thayer will be enshrined on Friday, Aug. 4 at the Fasig-Tipton sales pavilion in Saratoga Springs at 10:30 a.m. The event is open to the public and free of charge. “I take the Pillar of the Turf recognition as much a tribute to all of those who have worked with me to improve Tampa Bay Downs and the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame,” said Thayer, the first woman to hold the position of president of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame from 2005-2014. “It’s something I greatly appreciate.”
Ms. Thayer has more than 49 years of experience representing clients in business and corporate matters, tax and planning, and wills, trust and estate planning.
