Truro Raceway is pleased to announce that they have hired Melissa Keith and Grady Hachey as their On-Air Racing Analysts for the upcoming season.
Ms. Keith is a Nova Scotia native who is well known across Canada as both a professional handicapper for multiple tracks across Canada and an award-winning journalist. Her work included working with Truro last season as our handicapper, providing her “Tips from @TheTriactor” last season.
Mr. Hachey is a Fredericton, New Brunswick native and is a current columnist for Atlantic Post Calls, providing New Brunswick racing coverage. He also has the distinction of having called his first race as a track announcer at 11 years old. He also works part-time for Trainer Charlie Miles.
“I had never met Ms. Keith until I arrived in Nova Scotia, but I have long enjoyed her work as a journalist and broadcaster. She is very well known across the country and respected in our industry. I couldn’t be more thrilled to have her join our on-air team. Grady is a young man who has a lot of talent and knowledge and a great deal of potential. I’ve worked with several other talented young broadcasters who have been successful and I feel he has similar qualities to them. I’m looking forward to working with him, and I know fans will enjoy what Mel and Grady will bring to them as our on-air team this season.” Said Truro General Manager Steve Fitzsimmons.
The Race track will be adding a Pre-Game Show this season, which will feature an interview each week conducted by Marketing Assistant Kaitlyn Wesley, as well as an in-depth analysis of that day’s race card. Follow Grady Hachey on Twitter @grady_hachey and Melissa Keith @TheTriactor.
