Racing's Future: Ryan Martin

"“Racing’s Future” is a Q&A series in which I aspire to help everyone in the industry. In addition to shining a spotlight on youth who plan to have a career in horse racing, I hope that the opinions expressed in their responses will offer industry leaders insight into what a younger audience believes the sport should improve upon.

Meet Ryan Martin

From Louisville, Kentucky, 21-year-old Ryan Martin believes he is the person most passionate about racing to be featured in “Racing’s Future” to date. Having been a racing fan for about as long as he can remember, his love and passion for the sport began when his dad would take him to Churchill Downs as a little boy. That love and passion that he developed at a young age has only continued to grow. Now an equine business major at the University of Louisville, Ryan is studying to someday work in the racing industry. Last summer, he interned with the Saratoga Special, a newspaper that is distributed during the summer meet at Saratoga. Through this, he was able to interact with many prominent horsemen, including Todd Pletcher, Shug McGaughey, John Velazquez, and Rosie Napravnik. He is currently a tour guide at the Kentucky Derby Museum, and at the beginning of the year was the public relations intern for the museum. . ."
