Horse Racing
Women's Summit

Founded in 2022, the Horse Racing Women’s Summit (HRWS) has grown into a movement gathering national attention. The inaugural multi-day summit at Santa Anita Park and subsequent events brought together people from all facets of the horse racing industry with the mission of connecting and empowering women in horse racing. We look forward to continuing to inspire Summit members to be trailblazers, build networks, meet new friends, foster deep discussions, and ultimately Engage, Innovate and Invest!

Our Pillars


Attendees are seeking a collaborative environment in which they can connect across industry pillars as well as influence  the decisions that affect the trajectory of the industry.


Hearing stories from the careers of colleagues and mentors will help build a peer network through which women can  expand their community within the sport. Educational and breakout sessions at the conference will empower women with  the knowledge they need to build their careers in racing.


The Summit will promote inclusion in the horse racing industry and give a prominent voice to women, paving the way for  overarching improvements in the sport. Horse Racing enjoys a vibrant fan base of women, and valuable contributions from  its female workforce, but there is more to do to promote women in leadership and executive roles.


By establishing a mentorship program, the Summit will provide guidance on how to navigate common industry politics,  creating a path for all to feel confident in pursuing a career in horse racing.


Women comprise an enthusiastic and vocal percentage of racing’s audience. Involving women in business decisions is key  to the long term health and success of our sport, and the Summit intends to increase their participation at all levels.
