Meet Madison Jackson

An avid racing fan since age 10, when she first saw the movie "Secretariat," Jackson has been passionate about diving deeper into the sport, whether that be by going to various racetracks or developing contacts with those in the racing industry.

She began writing about racing in seventh grade, when a 500-word writing assignment turned into a published book. But her proudest writing accomplishment came in 2015, on a Facebook comment about the racehorse Runhappy, which earned her two tickets to the 2015 Breeders' Cup and the opportunity to hoist the Breeders' Cup Sprint garland over her shoulders.

Jackson lives in Northeast Indiana, where she keeps a variety of animals, including her two off-track Thoroughbreds, Rayonnant and Swinging Chango, her mini horse and her Paint. In the fall of 2018, she began attending the University of Louisville, where she's majoring in Equine Business Management.
