Conference tickets are now on sale for the inaugural Horse Racing Women’s Summit (HRWS), Sept. 28-30 at Santa Anita Park. The conference features speakers and networking opportunities for women currently engaged in the Thoroughbred horse racing industry and those who wish to be.
Tickets can be purchased at www.WomeninRacingSummit.com. Sales will be limited in order to maximize the experience for all participants.
“Our planning committee is small but mighty and has been working intently to provide an impactful experience,” said Stephanie Hronis, HRWS chair. “We are awestruck by the outpouring of support and enthusiasm from generous sponsors, compelling speakers, and individuals ready to volunteer. The HRWS is designed for women (and men) from all facets of the industry and we look forward to engaging in a meaningful way in September and at follow up events in the future.”
Thursday kicks off with a keynote address from Susan Packard, author, speaker, former board member of Churchill Downs, Inc., and media entrepreneur. The day
will continue with three panels addressing current events and offering meaningful takeaways for attendees. Each panel will end with a Q&A session allowing for audience engagement.
Friday morning, which also is the opening day of Santa Anita’s 2022 Autumn meeting, attendees are invited to a handicapping seminar with TVG’s Christina Blacker and will also have the opportunity to attend the charitable Safety Net Foundation’s Fashionable Fillies luncheon event in the Chandelier Room (discounted luncheon tickets available for HRWS attendees).
Additionally, HRWS attendees will have access to a reserved section of box seats for the opening weekend of racing at Santa Anita, featuring two Breeders’ Cup Win and You’re In races.
“I am immensely grateful to be included in the Inaugural Horse Racing Women’s Summit taking place this September,” said Dora Delgado, Executive Vice President, Chief Racing Officer, Breeders’ Cup Limited and HRWS panelist. “Being able to connect and share experiences among women of all facets of horse racing will not only empower those attending but will serve as a model going forward for fostering engagement, building networks and inspiring others to reach their goals.”
