Thistledown promotes Reitz


Brent Reitz has been named the new general manager of Thistledown. Reitz, 45, has served as the track's assistant general manager since William J. Murphy, Thistledown's former GM, was named the vice president and general manager of Gulfstream Park last July.

Murphy, who was named president of Gulfstream in January, had been overseeing the operations of both facilities. Gulfstream and Thistledown are owned by Magna Entertainment.
