Hoosier Park Racing & Casino announced today the appointment of Rick Moore to the position of general manager of racing, effective immediately.

Moore will report directly to Centaur’s new vice president of racing, Brian Elmore. Elmore served as the general manager of racing since May 2011 and will now oversee racing operations for both Hoosier Park Racing & Casino and Indiana Grand Casino and Downs.

“I am looking forward to working alongside the Hoosier Park Racing & Casino team as we continue to grow the Indiana horse racing fan base,” said Moore. “Both new and loyal racing fans can continue to expect the best in racing with a focus on family-friendly fun and entertainment.”

Moore, an integral member of Hoosier Park’s opening team in 1994, oversaw racing operations and expansions for nearly 14 years before taking a management position with MainSource Bank in Anderson, Indiana. Under his Hoosier Park tenure, Moore led the creation and expansion of three off-track betting facilities, the addition of dual breed horse racing, and introduced multiple premier signature racing events.

“Rick’s efforts built the foundation on which Hoosier Park horse racing sits today,” said Brian Elmore, Centaur’s vice president of racing. “His knowledge of the history of Hoosier Park horse racing and years of experience in the industry will be a tremendous asset to our team.”

Moore currently serves on the boards of the United Way of Madison County, C.A.S.A., Regions 5 Workforce, and the Anderson Rotary. Moore also holds the positions of vice-chair of the Anderson Urban League board and member of the United Way of Madison County Fundraising Committee.

“Rick is a dedicated community leader whose efforts epitomize Centaur and Hoosier Park’s commitment to the local community and volunteer service,” added Jim Brown, Centaur’s president and chief operating officer.
