With the COVID-19 virus shutting down all schools, many Indiana students have found a place in the barns across the state. Schools are not expected to go back into session until early May, leaving time for many students to get in the barn and help families with day-to-day tasks with Standardbred race horses.

One of those students who is spending his time wisely is Carson Conrad. A recent transfer to Morristown, Carson has been accompanying his father, Charlie, and mother, Sara, along with his younger brother, Carder, to the family Standardbred operation at the Shelby County Fairgrounds.
