President & Co-Founder

Samanta Bussanich

Samantha Bussanich was introduced to horse racing by her grandpa when she was 6 and since then her love for the sport grew immensely more everyday. Growing up in New Jersey the closest track to Samantha was Monmouth Park. Whenever she was at the track, she had a camera in her hand, which landed her an internship with Eclipse Sportswire when she was just a senior in high school. Interning with Eclipse was the first step for her path in the racing industry.

A recent graduate from the University of Kentucky with degrees in Equine Science & Management and Marketing, Samantha spent her time in college working for consignor James Keogh, the Keeneland Association, Godolphin, and for trainer Mark Casse. She has also held a stint with Silver Springs Training and continues to work for Casse Racing. Her goal is to become the most well-rounded horsewoman she can become while promoting the sport.
