Delaware hires Ken Wilson has track superintendent


Ken Wilson has been named the new track superintendent at Delaware Park. Wilson, the 28-year-old son of former Mid-Atlantic riding star Rick Wilson, will replace Ken Brown, who is retiring after 11 years on the job.

Wilson has worked at the Maryland Jockey Club tracks since 2007 and has served as the track superintendent at Pimlico.

“He has been around the sport all of his life, and he has a solid reputation,” said John Mooney, the executive director of racing at Delaware Park.

◗ The Budweiser Clydesdales will be at Charles Town on May 12 and May 14. The eight Clydesdales will parade for the crowd between 5 and 8 p.m. The Clydesdales are about 18 hands – or 6 feet tall – at the shoulder and weigh about 2,000 pounds.
