Veteran racing official Mike Acton has been hired as Sam Houston Race Park's track's Racing Secretary. He assumed the role on Feb. 3 and will serve in the same capacity at Retama Park and Zia Park during their respective meets this year.
“Mike is an experienced racing professional who has deep connections in our region that will serve the industry well,” Sam Houston Vice President and General Manager Dwight Berube said.
Acton most recently served as the Racing Secretary at both Remington Park and Lone Star Park.
“I am going to miss my co-workers at Remington and Lone Star,” Acton said. “But I am humbled to work with great people at Sam Houston and Retama and am excited about meeting everyone at Zia Park.”
The Sam Houston Thoroughbred meet continues through Apr. 8.
