Laino to head Illinois Racing Board


CHICAGO - Marc Laino was named executive director of the Illinois Racing Board on Monday. Laino, 43, has worked for the board since 1987, most recently as deputy director.

The post of executive director had been vacant since Walter Dudycz resigned in May, though Laino, an active figure on the board, had taken on the bulk of the executive director duties in the last two months.
