Published: June 30, 2011 12:50 pm EDT

Horse Racing New Brunswick today announced that Dave MacLean has joined the organization as the general manager of Exhibition Park Raceway

in Saint John.

MacLean, a standardbred industry veteran, has been involved in harness racing for more than 25 years. He has been a horse owner and has also worked in track management as a race secretary and publicity director. He has also covered the racing industry as a journalist, having written for English and French-language newspapers and magazines.

The industry veteran will oversee the day-to-day operations at EPR and will also be responsible for the teletheatre operations in Moncton and St. Andrews, while assisting in the development of additional off-site wagering facilities in New Brunswick.

“I’m looking forward to the opportunity,” said MacLean, who will begin his duties on Monday, July 4. “I’m fully aware of the challenges facing the industry and I’m confident we will overcome them and help rebuild a strong industry for the hard-working horsemen and horsewomen in New Brunswick.”

“Horse Racing New Brunswick is very excited to welcome Dave to the team,” said Jeff Malloy, executive director of Horse Racing New Brunswick. “Dave comes with a lot of knowledge and experience in the harness racing industry. Our organization has key goals for the future, and we feel Dave will play a major role in achieving them.”

Horse Racing New Brunswick is a non-profit organization which operates the harness racing programs at Exhibition Park Raceway in Saint John, Fredericton Raceway in Fredericton and Connell Park Raceway in Woodstock.




Horse Racing NB has finally taken a step forward. Dave is a perfect choice for this position & will no doubt start to get things moving in the right direction for the first time in years @ EPR. Things can only improve in my mind & Dave will make positive things happen, not only @ EPR but for all horse racing in NB.

Best of luck Dave!

Wish Dave all the best. There are extreme challenges in Saint John. There's a need for a new facility, and other upgrades to make the place look presentable again. With his connections, Dave should be able to promote the track much better than it has been in the past three plus years. Best of luck Dave on your new role.

Congratulations to Dave and HRNB...and all the best in the new position!
