Presque Isle racing secretary leaves


Dave Frizzell resigned as the racing secretary at Presque Isle Downs on Thursday. Frizzell took the job in 2008, the Erie, Pa., racino s second season of racing.

I have done all I can do for Presque Isle and need to find something closer to home. I need to spend some time with my family, Frizzell said. I wish them all the luck in the world.

Frizzell resides in Pendleton, Ind. The track s general manager, Debbie Howells, said a replacement should be named shortly.

Presque Isle opened in 2007 with a 25-day meet, ran 100 days in 2008, and is currently in the midst of a 100-day season that runs through Sept. 26.
