Trainer Jenine Sahadi looks forward to bringing her stable to Del Mar
every summer. She will be bringing 14 horses this year and enjoys
spending time at her home in Del Mar.
“Del Mar is my favorite track,” said Sahadi, who spends most of her year
at Los Angeles tracks. “I love being there with my family, my mother
and my younger brother, Steve, who lives in Solana Beach with his
family. It’s as close to a mini vacation as I get.”
How did Sahadi select training racehorses as a vocation? Sahadi grew
up with horses as a central focus in her life. Her parents, Fred and
Helen Sahadi, owned Cardiff Stud Farm in Creston, Calif. Her father
founded Barretts, an equine sales company. After earning degrees in
journalism and communications at the University of Southern California,
Sahadi worked for seven years in the marketing and publicity departments
at Hollywood Park.
