Rustin's Other Passion: Kretz Racing, LLC

Rustin's adventurous and optimistic spirit is well-matched to the sport of horse racing. After a trip to the Kentucky Derby in May of 2010, Rustin began contemplating the idea of owning a Thoroughbred. By the end of the month, he had begun researching local trainers online, at which point he came across Kristin Mulhall. Mulhall's philosophy and attitude matched Rustin's, and she soon found a promising filly in Florida named Westwood Pride. Westwood Pride's success opened the door to an entirely new field and the establishment of Kretz Racing. Rustin tackled this new and challenging arena with the same passion that has made Scorpion thrive.

Community Involvement and Charity Work

Rustin has strong ties to the community and is involved in various charitable activities that are near and dear to him. He makes regular contributions to charitable organizations for breast cancer research, ovarian cancer research, and contributes to help keep kids off drugs. In addition, he helps public school classrooms with supplies, helps underprivileged children go to college, donates to wildlife relief, and is an active supporter of CARMA (California Retirement Management Account). CARMA is an organization that raises money to support retired California racehorses.

Rustin has also acted as a mentor for young adults to help them in the pursuit of their goals.

Rustin is married to his wonderful wife Samantha, has a 6 year old son who is a future PGA champion and is a lifelong Lakers, 49ers & USC Trojans fan.
