Slagle hired as Woodbine's new racing secretary


ETOBICOKE, Ontario—Woodbine has hired a new Thoroughbred racing secretary, Stuart Slagle, who currently holds that position at Hastings Racecourse in Vancouver.

Slagle replaces Steve Lym, who has assumed the role of director of racing at Woodbine.

Slagle, 47, worked at Colonial Downs, Sunland Park, and the Maryland Jockey Club, before becoming the racing secretary at Manor Downs, Arapahoe Park, and finally Hastings in 2013. His job at Woodbine begins Nov. 10.

“I’ve watched and admired Woodbine racing for many years,” said Slagle, who was born in Ohio and raised in Texas. “I’m thrilled to be joining such a first-class organization like the Woodbine Entertainment Group.”
