Frank Sherren
Los Alamitos Race Course

With an extensive family history in horse racing it was inevitable that Frank’s career path would ultimately lead him to the position of Facilities Manager at Los Alamitos Race Course. Frank began working at Los Alamitos Race Course as a youth, cleaning stalls and helping/learning from his father, a prominent harness horse trainer. Following in his father’s footsteps Frank began training and also driving Harness Horses at the Los Alamitos oval in 1978. Frank transitioned into the construction business and obtained his General Contractors license in 1988 and in November of 1989 performed his first project for the racetrack as a general contractor. Ultimately, Frank ended up accepting full time employment with the track in his current position as Facility Manager in 1995.
