The FHBPA is pleased to announce that Jesus Tapia, from the barn of Mark Casse, has been selected as the Groom of the Month for March. The 26 year old is a native of Mexico and has employed at the barn for the last 3 years. Jesus is single but does have 2 brothers that also work on the backstretch. According to Nick, the barn manager, Jesus is working 5 of the best horses in the string, is a hard worker and a dedicated team player that comes to work everyday with a great attitude and a big smile. We acknowledge Jesus and all those who toil in the barns day in and day out to help keep the horses happy and healthy. As we do every month, the FHBPA encourages all trainers to nominate individuals from their respective barns for future Groom of the Month consideration.
