Dr. Joe Burch (1923-2001) started his very successful equine race track practice at Gulfstream in 1948, when his friend, James Donn Sr., gave Joe an office. Joe was highly respected by both his clients and his colleagues, as everybody knew that Joe Burch’s word was his bond. Seen here at the races in 1991, with his wife Margaret, he carried on his practice with his son George, from 1972-1997. The Joe Burch Scholarship at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine gives an annual gift to future equine practitioners.
