Charles Town: Charles McIntosh named new racing secretary


Charles Town Races in West Virginia has elevated Charles McIntosh to the position of racing secretary, filling a position vacated last year after the track fired its former racing secretary, Randy Wehrman.

McIntosh has been in Charles Town’s racing office for the past three years and will take the position effective immediately, according to a release from Charles Town’s parent company, Penn National Gaming Inc. McIntosh has previously worked at the old Latonia racetrack, now known as Turfway Park, and had also been the director of racing at Birmingham Turf Club, which closed in 1995.

Wehrman, who had been Charles Town’s racing secretary since 2008, was fired in December after being escorted off the track grounds by security personnel. Officials for Charles Town have declined to comment on the circumstances surrounding his firing.
