CTHF Hosts Health Fair at Golden Gate Fields
January 19, 2024
The CTHF hosted a health fair at Golden Gate Fields on January 17, 2024. The 75 backstretch workers who attended received a medical screening and had the opportunity to discuss the results with CTHF physician, Dr. Natasha Phan. Attendees also received a free health kit and lunch.
The event at Golden Gate Fields followed a successful health fair at Santa Anita Park in October 2023. These health fairs are opportunities for the CTHF staff to screen for major medical issues, make appointments for medical and dental visits, and interact with the backstretch community. We look forward to hosting them at facilities across California throughout the year.
CTHF Names New Executive Director
The California Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Foundation, Inc. (“CTHF”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Jordyn Egan as Executive Director, effective December 1, 2023. She will succeed Cliff Goodrich who is retiring after leading the foundation for the past eight years.
A native of Fallbrook, California, Jordyn’s background includes graduation from the University of Arizona Racetrack Industry Program and the Godolphin Flying Start Program. She then worked for the Maryland Horse Breeders Association and, most recently, the Thoroughbred Owners of California, as Executive Director.
Most importantly, Jordyn has demonstrated a knowledge and appreciation of the backstretch workers that is CTHF’s Mission to serve. We look forward to her leading the organization to continue our efforts to improve the quality of their lives.
