Raymon F. Tucker is a fifth-generation, self-described “Florida Cracker” born in Christmas, and a champion quarter horse breeder and cattleman. He graduated from the University of Florida in 1938 with a degree in animal science. He is credited with popularizing quarter horse racing in the Southeast and was instrumental in the passage of legislation permitting quarter horse racing at thoroughbred tracks in Florida. Tucker was the first president of both the Atlantic Coast Quarter Horse Racing Association and the Florida Horse Breeders Council and was honored as the “Outstanding Man in Agriculture” by the Florida Association of County Agricultural Agents and the “Faithful Service to the Cattle Industry of Florida” award from the Florida Cattlemen’s Association.
