But each chose a different path: Dr. Doug Antczak '69 became a professor at the College of Veterinary Medicine, where he has conducted groundbreaking research in equine pregnancy, while Walter Zent '59, D.V.M. '63, joined one of the world's top equine practices and specialized in Thoroughbred breeding in Kentucky.
