The Stronach Group (1/ST RACING) has hired a second veterinarian who will be based at the Maryland Jockey Club racetracks.
Dr. Virginia “Ginny” Gillam, who has served as Associate Commission Veterinarian for the Delaware Thoroughbred Racing Commission at Delaware Park, will begin her new job as MJC Association Veterinarian Nov. 10. She will work alongside Dr. Heidi Thomas, who was hired as MJC Senior Veterinarian in August 2020.
Gillam, who at Delaware Park was one of two vets who supported DTRC Chief Veterinarian Dr. Susan Botts, will primarily be observing horses in training and during live racing, and having follow-up discussions with horsemen as needed. She will also assist in doing spot-check examinations on horses.
