EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment is sponsoring a Race Announcer Workshop on Saturday, July 27.

The workshop, open to all ages, will be conducted by Meadowlands and Freehold Raceway announcer Ken Warkentin, who has called over 200,000 Standardbred and Thoroughbred races, including 19 Hambletonians. Warkentin, who started calling races at age 16, has been on racing broadcast teams for CBS, NBC and ESPN. He provides voice-overs for a variety of outlets and has a website, http://www.kenvoice.com/.

The day's events will start at 9 a.m. at the track and wrap up with students who wish to do so calling one of the non-betting, non-purse races for 2 year olds that will start at 10 a.m. If the number of students who want to call a race exceeds the number of races that day, a random draw will be held to match a student with a race.
