Residence: Ocala, Fla.
• Originally from Kerala, India, the husband and wife came to the United States in 1963 to practice
medicine and settled in Hot Springs, Ark., where K.K. was a cardiologist and Devi was a pathologist.
They retired in 1998 and moved to Tiffany Farm in Ocala, but continue to winter in Hot Springs and
oversee their local runners.
• Frequently among Oaklawn’s leading owners, they enjoyed a particularly good meet in 2012, finishing
second in the standings with 15 wins. Their top runner in 2011 was Holy Heavens, who won the
$50,000 Martha Washington Stakes before finishing second in the Honeybee (G3) and third in the
Fantasy (G2) Stakes.
• Devi was introduced to racing through a fellow doctor and late friend Thomas Burrow. When he died in
1984, she and K.K. helped his son disperse his stable, but K.K. ended up purchasing some 18 horses
including an eventual Grade 3 winner and was hooked.
• Their biggest star was 2009 Belmont Stakes, Travers, Jockey Club Gold Cup winner and 3-year-old
Eclipse Champion Summer Bird, who had finished third in the Arkansas Derby earlier that year.
• They were the leading breeders in Arkansas in 1997-98.
