Good afternoon racing club members, I just wanted to take a couple of minutes to introduce myself on the blog. Some of you have been e-mailing back and forth with me and some have made contact with me throughout the sign-up period. Others have asked for a little bit of information about who I am and what I do, so I thought I’d write a quick post.
I have worked at Canterbury Park on and off since 2006 and have followed Minnesota racing for more than 20 years. Horse racing is a game that I thoroughly enjoy and, if you can believe it, is actually the area of focus of my higher education.
I graduated from the University of Arizona’s Race Track Industry Program with a Master’s Degree in Racetrack Management in 2010. Shortly thereafter, I returned to Canterbury Park as the Social Media and Live Racing Coordinator. During my education, I was fortunate enough to work with the New York Racing Association and was able to watch Summer Bird win both the Belmont Stakes and the Travers.
I’ve worked with Jeff throughout my time at Canterbury and helped him out with the Racing Club last year. I’m very excited to again be working with Jeff on this racing club as I believe it’s a pretty unique experience that isn’t replicated by many other racetracks. Owning a racehorse can be a lot of fun and Jeff and I aim to make this experience as fun as possible.
Jeff and I will both post on the blog and respond to comments. As mentioned on an earlier post, I’m also available to reach by e-mail if you have any questions at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again for your interest in the racing club. I look forward to meeting all of you!
