Suffolk names new chairman, operating chief, financial head


Suffolk Downs named three new top executives on Wednesday, two of them returning track employees.

The track's new chairman of the board is Bill Mulrow, an investment banker who is a principal, along with Suffolk's owner, Richard Fields, in one of the entities bidding for the New York State racing franchise, Excelsior Racing Associates.

Chip Tuttle, who ran Suffolk's media and marketing departments in the early 1990s and more recently has worked in communications for the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, is the new chief operating officer at Suffolk. He will continue to be a consultant to the NTRA. John Rizzo, once the track's controller before becoming a partner in an accounting firm, is now Suffolk's chief financial officer. He will maintain his position with the accountants Costantino Richards Rizzo, LLP.

Mulrow replaces Patricia Moseley, whose late husband, James Moseley, revived the track in 1992.
