Dr. Elizabeth “Libby” Daniel began her new duties Jan. 1 as state veterinarian for the Maryland Racing Commission. She replaces Dr. David Zipf, who retired from the post at the end of 2016.
Daniel has served as state vet for the West Virginia Racing Commission at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races, and said she will continue in that role. Charles Town, located not far from Laurel Park, Pimlico Race Course, and the Maryland State Fair at Timonium, races in the evening except for a handful of days each year.
A resident of Charles Town, Daniel was state vet at the West Virginia track from 1997-2001 and then moved into small animal veterinary medicine. She returned to the Charles Town post about six years ago.
