Dr. Dobson is very excited to announce Elm Creek Equine's 2019 commitment to the horse racing industry of Manitoba. While we have serviced the Standardbred racehorses since the practice's inception, Thoroughbred racing is a new area of growth for the practice.
Dr. Dobson has a love of horse-racing that goes beyond veterinary medicine. As a teenager, she was actively involved at Marquis Downs, Northlands Park, and Rocky Mountain Turf Club. She worked as a groom, a pony person, an exercise rider, and a veterinary assistant at these tracks, before eventually practicing as a licensed veterinarian at Assiniboia Downs for 2 years. She also raised money for charity by participating in Alberta Downs Amateur Jockey Racing.
Dr. Dobson has an understanding of racetrack practice and is looking forward to providing the horseman of ASD with an outstanding service focusing on maximizing performance through management and injury prevention.
Keep an eye out for Dr. Dobson at ASD every day from March 20th to the end of the race-meet. We will be distributing contact information, service request forms, and pre-race information packages.
See you at the races!
