The Mark Thurman Endowed Scholarship in Racing has been established at the University of Arizona Race Track Industry Program (RTIP) due to a donation from CHRIMS, a “not-for-profit, mutual benefits organization focused on providing technology solutions for the pari-mutuel gaming industry.” CHRIMS made the donation to honor Mark Thurman's contributions to the racing industry upon his retirement as CEO.

“Mark dedicated over three decades to building his vision of CHRIMS from a set of spreadsheets into a unique and powerful service critical to the operation of California racing,” said Gunner laCour, president of CHRIMS. “His contributions to the sport of horse racing in California and nationally will continue for decades to come. It is only fitting that his legacy is commemorated through this scholarship designed to support the next generation of racing innovators.”
