Outstanding Off-track Worker: JENNIFER BUCK

The inaugural Outstanding Off-Track Worker Award was presented to Jennifer Buck, who has been with Adrian Munro’s Highfield Stock Farm in Okotoks, Alberta, since 2013.

The Jockey Club of Canada introduced the Outstanding Off-Track Worker Award as a way to honor the unsung heroes who make Thoroughbred racing in Canada possible through their hard work and dedication at off-track thoroughbred racing, training, boarding, breeding, sales, and aftercare farms and facilities.

Jennifer, who was born in Ontario, learned to ride horses at a young age when living in Connecticut. Once settled in Alberta as a teenager, she worked for Glenview Stables and manager Brian Ferguson, a Windfields Farm alumni, learning the intricacies of farm management, from painting fences to barn care. She pursued performing arts in school at Mount Royal and worked as a fly-fishing guide on the famous Bow River, which she still does today.

But the lure of horses was too strong. While raising her son Hunter, Jennifer went to work at the famed Bar None Ranches for Mike Vanin. She also had a love for working with polo horses and she played at the Calgary Polo Club before moving over to Highfield.
