A panel covering the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act (HISA) has been added to the agenda for Track Superintendent Field Day set for June 12-14 at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla.
The implementation of HISA, set to take effect on July 1, is of interest to all horsemen and racetracks, as well as to track superintendents and their staff.
“We know that HISA is the most important topic in the industry right now, so we worked to put together a panel to address the specific impact on track superintendents,” said Roy Smith, founder of the event and track superintendent at Horseshoe Indianapolis. “We are keeping registration open for anyone who wants to attend this important meeting.”
The HISA panel will include Jamie Richardson, Track Superintendent at Churchill Downs, and Glen Kozak, NYRA’s Senior Vice President, Operations & Capital Projects.
In addition to the HISA panel, the agenda includes record keeping, track equipment, turf course maintenance, track layout and on-track emergency response, as well as panels focusing on jockeys and track supers.
Thanks to a long list of sponsors, including title sponsor Equine Equipment, registration is free for track supers and staff.
One of the event’s longtime sponsors, Exmark, has been named as the Official Mower of Track Superintendent Field Day.
“Our sponsors and our host track, Gulfstream Park, are the ones who make this possible and affordable for track supers to attend,” said Steve Andersen, founder of Equine Equipment. “We appreciate Exmark stepping up their support as well as all the other sponsors who have shown a commitment to the racing industry by being a part of this event.”
