Dan Bork new Gulfstream racing secretary


Dan Bork has been named racing secretary for the 2010 Gulfstream Park meeting, replacing Doug Bredar, who served in that capacity this past winter.

Bork, 39, is the son of Bob Bork, president of Sam Houston Park, and the nephew of Bill Bork, president of Penn National Gaming and Racing.

Bork currently serves as racing secretary at Ellis Park, assistant racing secretary at Keeneland, and as a steward at Kentucky Downs.

"Dan has proven to us, through his work ethic, through his knowledge of the industry and through the positive relationships he has cultivated with horsemen, that he is an up-and-coming star in this business. We're very happy to have him with us this winter," said Gulfstream's president and general manager Bill Murphy in a release Wednesday.
