As we begin the New Year, the FHBPA is pleased to recognize Oscar Ticun as the Groom of the Month honoree for January. He will be presented with his award on Friday January 22. Oscar first started working with horses about 6 years ago, and the 23 year old native of Guatemala has been a fixture in the barn of trainer Carlos David. It is truly a family affair for Oscar and his sisters and brothers, who all work on the backstretch. Carlos, who was excited for Oscar to be selected, said he is currently working with about 8 horses, and calls him one of the best in the groom business. The FHBPA salutes Oscar Ticun, and all of the hard working backside support that strive to make our racing the best that it can be.
The FHBPA would also like to give a tip of the cap to the 2020 winners.
