Anderson, IN — Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino is currently accepting applications for two internship opportunities with the Race Marketing Department for the second half of the 2020 live harness racing season.

The internships will be with the Race Marketing Department and are ideal for students looking for an internship in the fall semester who will be pursuing careers in marketing, hospitality, communications, business, and any equine related fields.

The internship program is designed to give applicable marketing experience while simultaneously discovering and learning the many facets of the harness racing industry. The race marketing interns will have the opportunity to work alongside industry and media professionals in an exciting, fast-paced environment.

Each intern will be expected to assist the Race Marketing Department with a variety of promotional events, racing activities, and programs in a customer-service based atmosphere. The race marketing interns will assist with the daily production of the live racing program along with various group and charity events. The interns will also be challenged to write blog pieces, develop and maintain new marketing contests, along with public relations and social media assignments.

Interns in 2020 will also have the opportunity to assist with the preparation and execution of the 37th edition of the Breeders Crown, the world championship of harness racing that will be hosted at Hoosier Park Friday (Oct. 30) and Saturday (Oct. 31). Interns will also assist with noteworthy nights of racing such as the Dan Patch Stakes on Aug. 14 as well as help with the execution of various events held at the track.

This opportunity is ideal for college students looking for an exciting fall internship in the horse racing industry or students seeking internship accreditation opportunities in related fields. The positions require an energetic, self-starter with strong communication skills, organizational skills, and experience in social media applications. Applicants must have reliable transportation and be willing to work weekends and evenings. Experience in the horse racing industry is beneficial but not required.

This paid assignment will run throughout the second half of the live racing season. Hoosier Park’s 27th season of live harness racing kicked off on June 16 and will be conducted through Nov. 21. With a daily post time of 6:30 p.m., Hoosier Park Racing & Casino will offer a very lucrative stakes program throughout the season highlighted by the Breeders Crown’s return to Indiana.
