Matt Dinerman has been hired as track announcer for the remaining five days of the 2021 spring/summer meet at Grants Pass Downs.
The voice of Golden Gate Fields, the youthful Dinerman is filling in for Jason Beem, who this week begins his new job as track announcer at Tampa Bay Downs.
Dinerman, 28, has announced at Golden Gate since December 2017 and previously called races at Emerald Downs, where he was hired as the track’s full-time announcer at age 22.
“I’m really excited to pinch-hit for Jason Beem at Grants Pass Downs,” Dinerman said. “It’s fun to call races at a new venue and equally enjoyable to meet new people who share the same passion in horse racing.”
A San Diego native, Dinerman interned at Del Mar in 2012, assisting the track’s media relations staff and practicing announcing as time allowed. The personable announcer can often be found mornings in the stable area, where he enjoys meeting horsemen and getting to know the horses.
One of the races Dinerman will call is the $90,000 Firecracker Futurity on Sunday, July 4, which marks the richest race in the history of Grants Pass Downs.
Remaining live racing dates: Monday, June 28, 5:15 p.m.; Tuesday, June 29, 5:15 p.m.; Sunday, July 4, 1 p.m.; Monday, July 5, 5:15 p.m.; Tuesday, July 6, 5:15 p.m.
