Feb. 18, 2016

Tucson, AZ — Amy Zimmerman, Vice President and Director of Broadcasting for The Stronach Group, spoke to several classes on Tuesday and Wednesday including Race Track Media and Marketing, Race Track Organization, Structure and Financial Management, and the Hirsch Speaker Series.

Amy was gracious enough to share her experiences on a wide array of topics such as the production elements of the Triple Crown and Breeder’s Cup races for NBC as well as the different aspects of creating a top simulcast signal like Santa Anita.

Additionally, she hosted a lively debate on the issue of racing’s “identity crisis”. For this discussion, the students weighed in on their own experiences of how they became racing fans and their own opinions on whether racing should be considered a sport, gambling, or entertainment.
