The Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association’s Owners Concierge is dedicated to the encouragement of excellence and growth in the horse racing industry by providing owners with exceptional customer service, timely information and access to local resources. The goal is to ensure an exciting and successful off-track as well as on-track experience by serving the diverse needs of Thoroughbred owners.
In this day and age with time being limited, the TOBA Owners Concierge is geared toward offering peace of mind by providing clear and concise information, presented in an organized and easily accessible format. The concierge service is an owner-based initiative that, both directly and indirectly, caters to the Thoroughbred owners’ needs, as well as serving as a liaison between the horse owner and the racetrack in addition to facilitating relations with the extended racing community.
Heading this venture is Christina Bossinakis, Owners Concierge Services Director. A writer/editor for the Thoroughbred Daily News for over 14 years, Christina traveled all over the world to cover the sport’s most important races and sales. Since 2013, she served as on-air host/handicapper for Gulfstream Park and has been a regular guest commentator on HRTV. She was also a principal co-anchor and analyst as a member of TVG’s East Coast team in 2013 and 2014.
