Leonel Olguin – Minnesota HBPA Groom of the Week

Each week, the Minnesota Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Agency, the organization that represents trainers, grooms and owners, honors a groom in a winner’s circle presentation.

According to trainer Lynn Rarick, Leonel “Speedy” Olguin is a tremendous asset to her barn. Lynn says that Speedy takes great care of his horses, always thinking of their best interests. It’s also the same when it comes to his fellow workers; he’s always there to help.

Speedy grooms six horses, including two-time winner this meet Chocolateicecream, a 9 year-old gelding and winner of more than $250,000.

In addition to his expert work with horses, one can often find Speedy taking long, spirited runs around the grounds and neighborhood of Canterbury Park.

For all of his hard work and dedication to his horses, Leonel “Speedy” Olguin is the Minnesota HBPA Groom of the Week.
