The Pennsylvania Fair Harness Horsemen's Association announces that Jeff Zidek has been elected president of the harness racing group, effective immediately.
He replaces Trish Adams, who served as acting president in 2011 following the passing of longtime president Terry Schoeffel.
Adams was re-elected to her former position as vice president.
Zidek raced on the circuit in the 1990s before joining the Pennsylvania Harness Racing Commission as PR representative for fair racing. He served in that capacity from 1998 to 2011.
