I never really grew up around the track but my family used to go to the horse races and I loved it! I started coming around the track when a family friend who used to race chuckwagons invited me out. I never got really involved until my family bought an ex race horse for me to ride. We ended up bringing him back to the track and he actually ended up winning a race! This is when my love for horse racing began.
I became a groom and my love for horses grew more and more. I loved being able to work with all sorts of different horses and also being able to meet so many different people. I loved hearing all the stories on how things were “back in the day”.
In 2016, when I turned 18 I decided to write my trainers test. I wanted to try and make horse racing a full time career for myself. I loved being able to race in my home town. I always did dream about moving on to bigger things but I wanted to stay home. It wasn’t until this year we were forced to not race at our home track. I loved being at ASD and am thankful on how welcoming everyone was and also on the opportunity I got.
But there’s no place like home and I hope we will get the opportunity to race here again.
