Agenda Set For Track Superintendent Field Day At Horseshoe Indianapolis

The organizers of Track Superintendent Field Day have established a diverse agenda with many noted industry participants set to speak at the annual event scheduled for June 11-13 at Horseshoe Indianapolis. Registration is now open for the gathering, which is free to attend for track superintendents and staff.

For more than 20 years, Track Superintendent Field Day has brought together those who work tirelessly behind the scenes at the track to make racing as safe as possible for horses and riders. It is the oldest and most respected meeting of its kind in North America. Among the topics on the agenda are HISA, soil science, emergency situations, human resources, weather, and turf course engineering and management, as well as roundtable discussions for both jockeys and track supers.

The scheduled speakers include Eric Hamelback, CEO of the National HBPA, and Ann McGovern and Susan Stover with HISA.

“We couldn't be more pleased with our speaker lineup,” said Roy Smith, founder of Track Superintendent Field Day. “This meeting is all about sharing information and learning from others in our industry. We've already had strong early response to registrations, so we anticipate another great event.”

“Horseshoe Indianapolis has done a wonderful job of hosting this event on two occasions in the past, and they have done a wonderful job to help make this a first-class conference,” said Steve Andersen, founder of title sponsor Equine Equipment, which also assists with organizing the event. “We know budgets are tough, and that's why we have no registration fee for track supers and staff. With the event at Horseshoe Indianapolis, this would be a great central location for those farms with tracks and the training centers to consider sending their superintendents as well.”
