Track Superintendent Field Day Set For September

Churchill Downs will play host to the 2024 Track Superintendent Field Day Sept. 8-10, beginning with a welcome reception the night of Sept. 8 followed by two days of the conference.

The 2024 agenda will be developed by the advisory committee of seven racetrack superintendents with knowledge and experience with all types of surfaces: Leif Dickinson, Sean Gault, Glen Kozak, Jake Leitzel, Dennis Moore, Jim Pendergest, and Jamie Richardson.

Speakers, presentations, and hands-on demonstrations will take place at Churchill Downs. The topics will include sharing of best practices as well as discussions of the work done by racetrack superintendents and maintenance crews.

A focus of the 2024 event will be workforce challenges in racing. Remi Bellocq of the Bluegrass Community and Technical College will lead a panel to discuss workforce needs and support from the community college system.

Registration fees will be free for track superintendents thanks to key sponsors which include Equine Equipment, Equine Discounts, and Horsemen's Track and Equipment.

The 2025 event will be held at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in Grantville, Pennsylvania, with dates to be announced during this year's event.
