David P. Reynolds
David P. Reynolds (born June 16, 1915 in Bristol, Tennessee) is a Chairman emeritus of Reynolds Metals Co. and an owner/breeder of Thoroughbred racehorses. He is the son of Richard S. Reynolds, Sr. (1881-1955) who founded Reynolds Metals in Louisville, Kentucky.
Reynolds received his high school education at Lawrenceville School, where he captained the prep school's football team. He went on to graduate from Princeton University and would join the family business where he worked for more than fifty years. He followed his brother Richard S. Reynolds, Jr. as president, becoming the last member of his family to head the Richmond, Virginia-based company. In 1986, at age seventy, he stepped down as president but remained Chairman of the Board of Directors.
Thoroughbred horse racing
Reynolds became interested in Thoroughbred horse racing and notably owned and bred sprint horse Lord Carson, a multiple stakes race winner who equaled the track record for 6 furlongs at both Churchill Downs and Turfway Park. However, his most famous horse was Tabasco Cat, owned and bred in partnership with Overbrook Farm. In 1994, the colt won two of the three U.S. Triple Crown races, capturing the Preakness and Belmont Stakes.
