From Malvern Arkansas, Inez Hunter is a Supervisor Mutuel Teller at Oaklawn, a place she began working 35 years ago as a teller.

Inez was led to Oaklawn by mention of a friend. “I love it; the people, the teammates.”

The camaraderie is fluid throughout all of the staff at Oaklawn. Through the experience of meeting them, a mutual respect and love for the place and its people is discernible.

The employees that have been there for a long time, like Inez, find that they are happy there. It is more than just a job, it’s a family and a life.

With her bubbly effervescence, Inez paints a picture of her memory of Zenyatta — an Oaklawn Thoroughbred superstar, “She prances and dances, she loved the crowd”. This horse, Inez says, knew her worth and wasn’t afraid to show it off and entertain her audience.

Thank you Inez for your kindness and your dedication over the years at Oaklawn, making sure its tradition in excellence carries on.
