The Maker’ Mark Secretariat Center offers a variety of educational opportunities for students seeking immersion experiences in either Training and Barn Management or Business and Communications. If you are interested in one of our internships, submit the required application and references. Once the completed application has been reviewed, we will conduct an interview with the applicant as a condition of acceptance into the program.
Spring and fall internships run, on average, 12 weeks. Students are required to work a minimum of two days a week (Tuesday - Friday) and Saturday. Interns are also expected to attend any educational field trips, if offered, and if their class schedule allows. Past field trips have included, for example, the Churchill Downs Museum, Keeneland (behind the scenes), the North American Racing Academy, and KESMARC.
Summer internship sessions are flexible in length, but we require a three week minimum commitment (two weeks for high school aged interns). Interns will be asked to work during our usual hours of operation, but we are willing to accommodate, within reason, those who have part time jobs or summer classes. Junior and Senior high school students are welcome in the summer session.
