The Horse Racing Women’s Summit (HRWS) community will Meet Up in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., on Thursday, Aug. 3. The gathering at Saratoga Race Course will feature New York horsewomen and provide attendees with an opportunity to network during morning training hours and at the races.
In addition to our Meet Up, the HRWS is partnering with the New York Race Track Chaplaincy and The Jockey Club Safety Net Foundation to host a gathering for the women of Saratoga’s backstretch community under the Marylou Whitney Pavilion on Tuesday, Aug. 8.

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!”
