About Lavin Insurance Services

Lavin Insurance Services was established in 1998, securing underwriters domestically and internationally to provide our clients with specific policies that are unavailable to most of our competitors.

We’re small enough to know each of our clients, but we partner with carriers large enough to provide insurance for even complex and diverse equine accounts. We understand that there are constant changes to each client’s account, and we strive to offer superior service every step of the way. Equipped with the necessary experience, we help our clients become confident in their insurance choices.

Kevin Lavin grew up in Oldham County, just outside of Louisville Kentucky. Brought up by his father, A. Gary Lavin, who is a retired racetrack Veterinarian and his mother who serves on the Kentucky Racing Commission Board of Directors, he came to know all of the big names in racing. Partnered along with his brother, they established Lavin Bloodstock Services together. Kevin began working in the insurance business over 25 years ago as a certified insurance counselor. He is also active on many local equine boards, including the Kentucky Derby Museum, The Klein Family Learning Center and Thoroughbred Club of America.
