Martinez grew up working at Del Mar, where his grandfather Manuel Martinez was the trackman for decades. Martinez has worked at Sunland Park, Zia Park and was the track superintendent at Bay Meadows at the age of 28.

He and his family have also served as consultants and built tracks in Australia, Saudi Arabia and Canada.
