Matt Vance has been named executive vice president of racing for Remington Park in Oklahoma City and Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas. As executive vice president for both tracks, he will oversee all mutuels/simulcasting, operations, track maintenance and racing operations.
“For several years, Matt has overseen racing operations at Remington Park and over the past couple years he has served in an advisory role at Lone Star Park,” Skip Seeley, Global Gaming Solutions CEO. “His leadership and commitment to horse racing helped us navigate a very trying time during the pandemic at both tracks. He led the 2020 Quarter Horse Season through uncharted territory that enabled racing to continue throughout the pandemic. He then used that experience to guide health and safety protocols and operations in Grand Prairie when its season opened.”
Vance received the 2020 Gordon Crone Special Achievement Award from the American Quarter Horse Association for his work during the pandemic.
Vance served as vice president of racing operations at Remington Park since 2015. He worked at Louisiana Downs in 1986 then to Remington Park from 1988-1997. He moved to other tracks for six years and eventually returned to Remington Park in 2003 for the construction of the casino, and the transition to new ownership in Global Gaming Solutions in 2010.
