Clyde Rice passes away at 79

Clyde D. Rice (79) has passed on January 30, 2017 at his home in Anthony, Florida. Preceded in death by his brother Don Rice, he is survived by his wife Jean (59 years married), sisters Kaye Prough and Connie Steckbaurer, sons Bryan, Wayne and Curt, and a daughter Linda. He is also survived by grandchildren Brandon, Ashley, Taylor, Kevin, Adam and Cash, and great grandchildren Clyde Wesley Harvey, Preston Rice and Baylee Rice. He was a native of Antigo, Wisconsin. Born on August 3, 1937.

Clyde was passionate. He loved family, horses and competition. He taught high school while racing horses in the summers. His dream of racing year round led him to Waterford Park and on to Penn National Race Course.

After several training titles under his belt he transitioned to Pin-Hooking of yearlings to two-year-olds. His vision of an athlete within a young equine allowed him to forge a new direction in business. He was one of the first horsemen that created the concept “Pin-Hooking.” He was a long time shareholder and director of the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company and many high level have been sold by his consignment, “Indian Prairie Ranch.” His sons, daughter, nephews, nieces and hundreds of former employees have studied his lead and have found their own niche in areas of the thoroughbred industry. Clyde was a born teacher. He taught people and horses alike.

Clyde’s greatest legacy is most certainly the people he has touched. He helped everyone that had an interest in helping themselves. He has been an inspiration to watch, follow, learn from, live with and most of all, to call Family or Friend.

With Love,
From your family and friends
