Election To Be Held In December

Sunday, September 3, 2023

The Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association election for its Board of Directors, held every three years, will take place in December 2023. All 15 board seats are up for election.

Directors are elected to three-year terms. The MTHA board consists of seven trainers, seven owners and one at-large director. The at-large seat is determined by the highest vote-getter of the remaining candidates.

Ballots will be mailed to all members beginning Dec. 1, with a return deadline of Dec. 31. In addition, new for 2023, the MTHA will offer the ability to cast your ballot online, instead of by mail. Details will be released in the future.

All completed ballots will be mailed from, and returned, to a third-party company that specializes in corporate and non-profit elections. This election services firm will count the returned ballots and certify the results. Results will be announced online in mid-January.

Any owners and trainers interested in running for the board should submit their name through info@mdhorsemen.com or contact the MTHA office by phone or in person. In 2020 there were 34 candidates. Candidates will be asked to submit a biography that should include their goals and objectives for Maryland racing.

Please notify the MTHA by Oct. 1 if you are interested in running for a board seat. Each candidate will be asked to write a short biography and is encouraged to include why they are running for the board and what they would like to see in the future for Maryland Thoroughbred racing. If you have questions or need assistance contact Tom LaMarra at tom@mdhorsemen.com or 859-492-8365.
