Officials from Horse Racing New Brunswick have announced the resignation of Jeff Malloy as Manager of Operations.

Malloy has been with HRNB since its inception in 2008.

“My position with Horse Racing New Brunswick has been more than just a job to me, I have been very passionate about the industry and the organization since Day 1. It was an honour and privilege to have been part of the organization and leadership team for the industry in the province.” stated Malloy.

“It was a very difficult decision for my family and myself, I have two young children and a very supportive wife who have supported me over the past five years. This job is a lifestyle, it is not a 40-hour-a-week type of job. An opportunity came up that I had to consider.”

HRNB President Dr. Mitchell Downey is disappointed, but understands Malloy’s decision.

“I understand the pressure Jeff’s type of position puts on a young family first hand,” said Dr. Downey. “This was a personal decision Jeff had to make. He has a young family and has to put them first. He has indicated that he is committed to continue to assist and help the industry and organization going forward. We appreciate the dedication and effort Jeff contributed to the betterment of the industry both in New Brunswick and the Maritimes.”

Horse Racing New Brunswick received some positive news from the Provincial Government in October when they engaged the Atlantic Lottery Corporation to study the feasibility of an entertainment facility at Exhibition Park Raceway in Saint John. The industry is anxiously awaiting news of the study.

“We are continuing to work towards a model that will allow the industry to prosper,” stated Dr. Downey, who expects that more information will be available in the upcoming weeks.
