AMERICAN QUARTER HORSE ASSOCIATION—MAY 2, 2019—Wyoming Downs is hosting a Youth Racing Experience on August 16-18 in Evanston, Wyoming. 

The event is open to youth ages 15-23, and will offer young horsemen the opportunity for first-hand experience in racing. Limited positions are available, but all expenses for the event (except travel to Evanston) are included. The deadline to apply is August 12. 

Participants will get an opportunity to work with race trainers at the barns, and will also be able to hear from those who work in racing, and see first-hand jobs across the racetrack, from the racing office to steward’s stand, clocker, and much more. 

Live races will be held on Saturday and Sunday. 

Participants will also have the opportunity to apply for a position in the 2019 AQHYA National Youth Racing Championship Experience, which will be held at The Downs at Albuquerque in New Mexico on October 24-26.
