The Friday Show Presented By Woodbine: An Inspirational Choice At Keeneland

When Shannon Bishop Arvin begins her tenure on Jan. 1, 2021, as president of the Keeneland Association, she will be the first female to hold that position and one of the most powerful women in the Thoroughbred industry by virtue of the Lexington, Ky., racetrack and auction company’s history as a leader and innovator.

Arvin, whose father and grandfather held important positions at Keeneland,  was interviewed recently by Paulick Report editor-in-chief Natalie Voss. She did not step back from the realization that her selection as Keeneland president can serve as an inspiration to other women throughout the industry. “It’s not lost on me,” she said, “and I hope it does let women know that if you just get up every day and keep after it and be persistent, anything is possible.”

In this week’s edition of the Friday Show, publisher Ray Paulick and Voss discuss the appointment of Arvin as Keeneland president and what her focus may be after she takes the reins of power.

They also review wagering data for American racing that suggests how – in this year of the coronavirus pandemic – the shift from on-track or OTB bets to advance-deposit wagering has not been a boon to purse money.
