Golden Gate Fields racing secretary Greely dismissed


Golden Gate Fields dismissed racing secretary Sean Greely and several other employees in an economic-related cutback.

Joe Morris, the track’s general manager, called the decision “a payroll cut” and said that Greely’s assistant and stakes coordinator David Jerkens would take over the role as racing secretary.

Greely was named racing secretary in October 2004.

Jerkens is the grandson of Hall of Fame trainer Allen Jerkens. His father, Steven, and uncle, James, are also trainers.
