Cindy Thorpe grew up Lynn, a small city outside of Boston and after starting work decided that she didn't want to be in an office nine-to-five, but would prefer working on a farm. After a friend took her to Suffolk Downs to watch the races, she decided that's where she wanted to be. She's been a hot walker, a groom, a trainer and an owner. Right now she's working as a groom for Allan Lockhart. She has absolutely no regrets about her early decision and thinks that others would like working on the backside if they ever had a chance to experience life working with Thoroughbreds.
