Nexus Member Spotlight: Veronica Gizuk
Updated: Mar 19, 2020
Hailing from Ontario, Canada, Veronica Gizuk fell for horse racing the second she stepped foot on the racetrack. A trip to Woodbine Racetrack with her mother just over two years ago gave her the racing bug that so many racing fans are familiar with.
“The next day, I was on the backside, working,” Veronica said.
From there, she didn’t look back. Over the past two seasons, Veronica has worked various jobs at Woodbine: hotwalking, grooming, and serving as a vet assistant. Always looking to grow within the industry, Veronica has also recently received the opportunity to learn how to gallop.
Adding to her experience within the industry, Veronica currently works at Hill ‘N’ Dale Canada while studying pre-health science at Durham College, keeping plenty on her plate. With goals of becoming a bloodstock agent, Veronica recently joined Nexus as another avenue to become involved in racing.
“I love horse racing because it has given me incredible opportunities to connect with horses and others in the business across the country,” Veronica said.
