NYRA names three to posts


The New York Racing Association announced Friday that its racing secretary, P.J. Campo, has been named vice president and director of racing, effective immediately. In addition, Liz Bracken, the director of simulcasting, has been named vice president and director of simulcast sales and content acquisition.

NYRA also announced hiring Tom Thill as vice president and chief information officer. Thill had worked at Daily Racing Form as senior vice president of operations.

Campo, 33, will be responsible for managing day-to-day racing operations, writing the condition book, and allocating stalls. He essentially held the same responsibilities as racing secretary, a position he has held since July 2005.

Bracken, 40, has been director of simulcasting since 2001, overseeing simulcasts of NYRA racing to more than 1,000 outlets worldwide as well as the import of out-of-state signals to NYRA.

Thill, 40, will be responsible for developing a broad range of technology initiatives and improvements.
