Santa Anita | Benoit

Students who are currently enrolled in the Cal Poly Pomona Department of Animal and Veterinary Sciences Equine Studies Minor program will have the opportunity to intern at Santa Anita in a partnership announced Sunday.

“We are truly excited about this new partnership with Cal Poly Pomona,” said Santa Anita Senior Vice President and General Manager Nate Newby. “This is a tremendous way for us to introduce up-and-coming young professionals, as well a large group of highly motivated Cal Poly students, to our industry and best veterinary practices in Thoroughbred racing. We look forward to welcoming our new interns and we hope to make fans out of them as well.”

Fourth-year students Tina Kabbouche and Vanessa Cardenas have been selected as “debut” interns at Santa Anita from Feb. 18 through May 12.

Kabbouche, an Animal Science major with a Pre-Veterinary/ Graduate School option, plans to begin attending veterinary school next year. Her interests include the sports medicine aspects of the equine world.

Cardenas, an Animal Health Science major, intends to become a registered veterinary technician. Her goals include working within the equine industry, with an emphasis on the Thoroughbred racetrack industry.
