Santa Anita Seeks New Announcer


Following the announcement of 44-year veteran announcer Trevor Denman’s retirement last week, Santa Anita has begun the search for a new announcer. Submissions are welcome from around the world and the track will make arrangements for qualified candidates from outside of the United States to audition.

“Santa Anita is one of the most unique tracks in the world and the voice of Santa Anita should be just as unique,” said Joe Morris, SVP West Coast Operations for the Stronach Group. “We owe it to our fans to find the right person to set the tone for our next generation of fans. We welcome submissions from around the country and around the world. Trevor Denman went from being a 30-year-old unknown track announcer from South Africa to the most recognized voice in the racing world. Santa Anita is the place to make a career.”

Announcers interested in being considered should email a cover letter, resume and demo clip to [email protected] All entries will be considered and several candidates will be invited to audition at Santa Anita throughout the winter and spring.

Frank Mirahmadi and Michael Wrona will share the announcer duties at Santa Anita for the next few months and they too will be given strong consideration as the permanent race caller.
