Say It Again

  • “I just got off the tractor, I’m mowing paddocks. I reseeded two or three last year, limed them and seeded them, and I’m cutting them for the first time and hoping it instills them to grow a little bit more. My wife is chain harrowing. We’re still working. There’s always something to be done.”
    Trainer Kieron Magee, on what he did during racing’s shutdown
  • “The only thing I’ve been able to plan on is painting the trellis, painting the wood trim around the smokehouse which has needed to be done for years and all this stuff that’s been on the second shelf or the back burner.”
    Trainer Tim Keefe, sounding a lot like Magee

The Maryland Thoroughbred Career Program (MTCP) is a week-long curriculum will:

  • Increase awareness of the diverse career options in the Thoroughbred industry
  • Give participants access to leaders in all facets of the Maryland Thoroughbred industry
  • Highlight various paths for pursuing a career in the Thoroughbred industry
  • Address a critical need to attract and retain experienced employees

The MTCP is open to United States residents ages 17 to 21. A maximum number of six people will be selected for the inaugural class. Over the course of one week, participants will be exposed to all aspects of the Thoroughbred industry through site visits and discussions with industry leaders. Applications for the June 2017 program are due April 21; more details can be found at MarylandHorseIndustryFoundation.org.

Cricket Goodall, executive director of the Maryland Horse Breeders Association says, “The focus of the MHIF is education. We want to expose people to the broad range of career opportunities in the horse industry. With this MTCP itinerary we will give the participants a chance to spend time with industry leaders and experience what they do. Along with farm and race track managers they will meet writers, graphic designers, event managers and public relation professionals.”

Participants that successfully complete the program are eligible to apply for one-time funding to further their career pursuits within two years after their program ends. This funding - Career Development Funds - can be utilized for a variety of purposes including, but not limited to, tuition assistance or business start-up costs. The funds are not guaranteed to everybody that completes the program. The application process for Career Development Funds will be announced at a later date.

Sal Sinatra, Maryland Jockey Club general manager states, “It is a challenge to get young professionals to take a look at all of the career options available at the track - accounting, guest services, catering and more. The Maryland Thoroughbred Career Program will provide people that are passionate about horses the opportunity to get a first hand look at the wide variety of jobs the Thoroughbred industry has to offer. This program inspired us to launch the Maryland Jockey Club Students on Track Career Initiative, which will work hand-in-hand with the MTCP to attract and retain the next generation of leaders in the Maryland horse industry.”
