EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP)
Jason M. Settlemoir has been named the general manager and chief executive officer at the Meadowlands Racetrack.
Track chairman Jeff Gural announced the move on Wednesday. Settlemoir has run Gural's two New York racetracks, Tioga and Vernon Downs, since operations began in 2006. He will remain as vice president of racing and sponsorships at those properties.
Settlemoir said the goal of the track is to improve the racing experience for the fans, with an emphasis on customer service.
Gural said he was confident in Settlemoir's ability to execute my vision for the new Meadowlands.
Settlemoir replaces Mike Newlin, who served one year as the track's general manager before leaving.
