GOT QUESTIONS FOR OUR “TRUTH TO POWER” PANELISTS?
The Racing Biz, LLC, a media company focused on Thoroughbred racing and breeding in the mid-Atlantic region, will host the second in a series of digital panel discussions designed to tackle issues of diversity and inclusion within the Thoroughbred industry on March 17 at 5 p.m. ET.
Wednesday’s panel, which can be viewed at www.theracingbiz.com or on social media, including Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube, includes a great group of panelists:
- Eons sets Colonial Downs record in BucklandA severe storm couldn’t drive Colonial Downs off the turf, but it did seem to help closers, one of whom, Eons, set a course record in the Buckland Stakes.
- Renee Hess, founder of the Black Girl Hockey Club, which bills itself as a “community space for Black women in hockey and the folks who love us”;
- Leon Nichols, cofounder of the Project to Preserve African-American Turf History; and
- Ron Mack, founder of Legacy Equine Academy in Kentucky, which “connects with racially diverse youth to provide exposure to the vast opportunities in the Equine and Agriculture industries.”
Also on board will be the project’s principals: Alicia Hughes of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association; freelance journalist and teacher Teresa Genaro; and Frank Vespe, owner and publisher of The Racing Biz.
