Edited Press Release
After 364 days and stops in Kentucky, Arizona, Florida and New York, the Horse Racing Women's Summit (HRWS) returned to Santa Anita Park Sept. 29 with over 150 women from 13 states and Canada gathered for the second Horse Racing Women's Summit.
“What a difference a year makes,” said HRWS Chairwoman, Stephanie Hronis. “We can't thank our community enough for their participation and investment in the Horse Racing Women's Summit movement. One of the things that we are most proud of is that over 10% of our attendees this year are here because of Pay It Forward scholarship tickets. Those are made possible by our generous sponsors and individuals who want to be sure that this event is accessible to all. We look forward to growing that percentage in the future. Generous support from 1/ST and FANDUEL TV led a total of 31 sponsors that made the extraordinary event possible.”
On Friday morning, over 50 HRWS attendees gathered again for an opportunity to have roundtable discussions with the goal of identifying a 2024 'Pillar of Priority' that will guide the HRWS efforts in the next year. Collective think tanks, attendee surveys, and a brand new membership platform are all key ways the HRWS is already empowering individuals in racing to contribute to the advancement of women in the industry.
