Clinton, ON — Clinton Raceway is pleased to welcome Tony Elliott as its assistant general manager.

The 21-year-old Walkerton native joined Hanover Raceway for their 2020 season as the assistant to the general manager, as well as the racing broadcast team at The Raceway at Western Fair District in October 2020.

In his position at Hanover Raceway, he helped plan and implement their advertising and social media campaigns, worked with the GM on over-hauling their broadcasting product and was their on-air analyst between races.

“Tony is a rising star in our industry and is intelligent, hard working and has a passion for the harness racing business. I gave him a lot of responsibility last season and he handled it all very well, ” said Hanover Raceway general manager Steve Fitzsimmons.

Elliott is a current horse owner and was raised around the business. His father, Glenn, once worked for harness racing Hall of Famer Bud Fritz, and his uncle, Steve, was the groom of the famed Ontario Sires Stakes champion mare Silver Reign.

“Tony loves the game and is quite keen to help it grow, that’s just not something we see everyday in this industry; we are happy to have Tony on board,” said Ian Fleming, general manager, Clinton Raceway.
