Grace began riding a BMX street bike during the Winter of 2012, when her supportive parents bought her the bike for Christmas.  After learning to ride her bike at the Santa Maria Elks Club BMX Park, she entered her first race where she beat four riders, all of whom were boys! She was hooked. After about a month, Grace was given a pre-owned "real” racing bike and she continued to win race after race. In her very first season, Grace finished in fifth place statewide and was asked to ride for the GHP race team (Greg Hill Products). Last year Grace finished fourth statewide and first in her district!

GRACE’S COMMITMENT: Grace races four days a week at four different tracks from Santa Maria to Camarillo. To help her prepare, Grace completes daily sprints and biometric exercises. She also carefully studies both film and pictures of her races to learn more about improving her personal performance. Apart from her racing, Grace earns good grades in school and is an all-star in soccer and softball. But, Grace was born to race.  In fact, you can’t spell her name without “race.” Go Grace!!!




This season, Mauro Pet Care in partnership with Grace will be racing on behalf of the charitable efforts of Hacienda O’Holland Ranch.

Located in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley of California’s Central Coast, Hacienda O’Holland Animal Care Foundation is dedicated to finding short and long term homes for abused or unwanted animals. Founded in 1995 by Joan Cassidy-O’Holland and David Holland Zatz, this 20 acre ranch offers medical help and feed for all types of animals.  Dogs, cats, horses, llamas, goats, ducks and bunnies peacefully wander the pastures and are loved by all those who continue to care for them.

A Featured Retailer Spot Light – Land of Paws


Land of Paws was founded in 1993 by veterinarians Dr. Mark Daly and Dr. George Gates and their wives, Patty Daly and Pam Gates. Their mission was to provide the Kansas City community with something that was missing: An upscale dog and cat store offering the most exclusive pet supplies, toys, treats, pet apparel and boutique items for a pet owner and their pets delivered with extraordinary customer service. The flag ship store, conveniently located next door to the veterinary practice, proved to be an instant success with the pet lovers and shoppers of Kansas City. With the brilliant combination of veterinarian expertise and fabulous taste, the store established an impeccable and exciting reputation that still holds true today.

Ten years later in 2003, Kristen Lewis and Catelin Corn approached the owners, wanting to expand the business and open a second location in the affluent suburb of Overland Park, Kansas. After years of experience working at the flagship store, and armed with recent advertising and communication degrees, Kristen and Catelin felt they were ready for the challenge. In July 2003, their dream became a reality and the second Land of Paws was opened. They continued to carry on Land of Paws’ tradition of over the top customer service, distinctive merchandising and trendsetting product selection for dogs, cats and their owners.

With the overwhelming success of the two Kansas City stores and at the request of many out of town shoppers, it was decided to share with the world the award winning combination of exclusive product selection, and fabulous customer service that have set them a part in a highly competitive and expanding pet market. In the summer of 2006, the E-Commerce website was launched, providing everything from their best selling, classic products form their Kansas City stores, to the hottest, must haves of the season.

In 2007, Courtney Hill and Land of Paws had the honor to join other well known, locally owned shops and become a part of Briarcliff Village, just five minutes north of downtown Kansas City, and a short distance from the Kansas City International airport. In their charming Tuscan-inspired setting, there is a well-rounded collection of the area’s favorite stores, shops and restaurants. It was a perfect fit for Land of Paws.

No matter which location you are shopping at, Land of Paws offers an unique experience unlike any pet store in the industry. The inimitable combination of pet supplies, accessories, all-natural pet food, and gourmet treats is always delivered with extraordinary customer service .
