Torie Gladwell, raised in small town Missouri, grew up showing Arabians and had a love for horses. She knew she wanted to pursue a career in the equine industry so she attended Murray State University in Kentucky. She got her degree in Agriculture Business with an Associates in Equine Science while riding on the equestrian team for a year. Graduating in 2006, she met Wayne Sweezy of Darby Dan Farm and worked the Keeneland sales knowing her passion was to be in the Thoroughbred industry. Quickly she was in Florida working the training sales for Tony Bowling for four years before she and her husband James Gladwell IV decided to go out on their own with Top Line Sales, LLC. Their training farm is located in Reddick, Florida under the name of Exclusive Equine Investments, LLC. They have many pinhooking partnerships and attend sales all over the country. They had their first 2 year old consignment in 2012 and since have grown it into a reputable operation selling, breaking, and training stars like Princess Noor, No Parole and Core Beliefs. Her broodmare operation has also grown quite large with mares in Florida, New York, and Kentucky.
