The 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. We believe that engaging, elevating and investing in women will transform horse racing and we look forward to continuing our mission to inspire Summit members to be trailblazers.
