Britney Eurton has left FanDuel Racing after nine years with the horse racing television network as a paddock host and reporter.
When she started the FanDuel Racing was known as TVG and she was trying to break into the business. The daughter of trainer Peter Eurton is now 36-years-old and venturing out into the vast unknown of the broadcast world, hoping to do new things and further her career.
“I thought a lot about the decision (to leave FanDuel),” Eurton said, “I felt it was the right time to take a leap of faith and explore other opportunities outside of the sport. I’m excited about the opportunity but at the same time I’m leaving the company that helped me get to where I am today.
“I am so grateful and I owe FanDuel so much,” Eurton continued. “But I also felt I owe it to myself to try to break into other sports, which is really what my dream was.”
Eurton still will have a hand in horse racing, both personally and professionally.
“I will continue doing my work with NBC doing horseracing,” Eurton said. “My father is still a trainer and I’m so excited to go back to the races as a fan. It always will be a part of my DNA and my story.”
Don’t try to get Eurton to get particular about her job prospects. Turns out she’s a bit superstitious when it comes to talking about something until it’s set in stone.
