Albany native Adam Walsh is the racing experience manager for Red Shores.
Walsh brings years of experience to the position, having served as the senior supervisor racing since 2010 and supervisor cage and count before that.
“Adam is passionate about racing and is a real asset to the Red Shores management team,” said Red Shores’ managing director Michael MacKinnon.
“He is well-versed in the operational aspects of the business, having been involved in, or leading, all areas of the role for a few years now, including the successful launch of the off-track wagering system that sends Red Shores’ races to locations in North America and Europe.”
Adam’s connection with the harness racing industry is deep-rooted.
“It seems that I’ve always been around horses,” Walsh said. “I used to help my dad and my uncles, Hook and Sam Walsh, with their horses, and then in 2002, I got a job as a pari-mutuel seller in both Charlottetown and Summerside.
“I’m thrilled to have built a career in the racing industry and I’m looking forward to working with all stakeholders to make the racing experience at Red Shores the best that it can be.”
Red Shores’ two locations employ a total of 260 Islanders. Both locations purchase as much locally as possible for things such as food, beverages, uniforms, marketing, etc.
