Live Racing Returns
January 6th, 2023


Sam Houston Race Park’s 2023 Thoroughbred Meet begins on Friday, January 6th; we will be offering many great, seasonal and part time positions.  Ideal candidates are students, retirees, teachers or anyone looking for a fun way to earn extra income. Requirements are simple: you just have to be friendly, outgoing and have a smile!  Our 4-8 hr shifts, flexible evening and weekend schedules make us the best part-time employment opportunity in NW Houston.


We will kick off our hiring campaign to fill more than 100 positions with a recurring series of hiring events. On-site interviews for all positions will be conducted at the hiring event.  Because employment offers may be made on the spot, candidates are asked to bring two forms of identification to these events.  Among the staffing needs for the 2023 meet, which runs January 6 – June 17 are positions in Admissions, Food Service, Housekeeping, Mutuels, Parking, Security, Racing, Track Maintenance and other areas. 


On-the-spot hiring is possible for those who apply in person.  Screening/interviews will be conducted in the Administration Building, enter through the gates at the Drop-Off/Rideshare entrance and follow the signs.
