Lynn was a third generation horseman and thoroughbred trainer following in the footsteps of his grandfather, Lloyd Whiting, a trainer, and his father, Lyle, a jockey and trainer. Lynn had a successful career in training racehorses spanning 50 years. He is best known for winning the Kentucky Derby in 1992 (25th anniversary) with Lil E Tee, owned by Cal Partee and ridden by jockey, Pat Day. He was well known and well liked at Churchill Downs, KY and Oaklawn Park, AR. He will be sorely missed among the racing community.
