About me/racing interests:
I'm a Marketing major at the University of Kentucky (possibly minoring in communications). Looking to become involved in racetrack marketing or public relations.

How did I get into racing?
Watching the Kentucky Derby every year got me intially interested as a child, since I'm from Louisville, then my uncle has been getting involved with owning racehorses for a while now so that's what helped me realize my passion for horse racing.

Favorite racing moment?
My favorite moment would no doubt have to be watching Zenyatta charging down the stretch in the BC Classic at Churchill Downs. I was in the stands that day, I was there with the UK Horseracing Club and it was an amazing experience! Watching Queen Z strut her stuff in the paddock and on the track was awesome! Though I did not have the best view of her from the grandstand, it was still amazing to see such a beautiful horse like herself!
