About Tex Cauthen

RONALD “TEX” CAUTHEN was born in Muleshoe, Texas and grew up near Sweetwater, Texas, on his grandfather’s farm. As a teenager he broke wild horses before taking a job at the San Angelo Texas racetrack. He began on the racetrack accompanying racehorses to New Orleans at 15 years of age, and he raced in the Midwest until 1952, when he was drafted into the Army and trained as a meteorologist.

When Tex returned to civilian life he attended the blacksmith program at Michigan State University, and he soon became a highly-respected racetrack farrier. Tex was elected to the International Horseshoeing Hall of Fame in its 1993 inaugural class.
In 1959 Tex married Myra Bischoff, an owner and trainer. Their first son, Steve, was born in 1960, then their second son, Doug, at which point the Cauthens bought a farm in Walton, Kentucky, where their third son, Kerry, was born.

Steve won the 1978 Triple Crown aboard Harbor View’s Affirmed as a teenager and later rode extensively in Europe, and Steve is a member of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. Doug is President of Doug Cauthen Thoroughbred Management LLC located in Lexington, KY, and Kerry is managing partner of Four Star Sales, a Lexington-based consignment company.
