Del Mar Executives Elevated

A pair of Del Mar Thoroughbred Club executives have been elevated in title to reflect the organization’s top-level leadership team’s equal stature and balance, it has been announced.

DMTC president and chief executive officer Joe Harper said that two of the group’s senior vice presidents – Craig Dado and Josh Rubinstein – now instead will carry the title executive vice president, putting them in line with its two other executive vice presidents, Mike Ernst and Tom Robbins. Additionally, Dado will add the title of chief marketing officer, while Rubinstein’s title will include the designation chief operating officer. The change is effective immediately.

 “Our leadership group has worked in balance since we put our current executive arrangement in place in July 2011,” Harper noted. “I lean heavily and equally on them for their expertise and special competence in their individual fields. They are an outstanding foursome and Del Mar is lucky to have men of their ability to take us forward. These title changes simply reflect the true nature of their shared leadership roles.”

DMTC’s current executive hierarchy was prompted in July 2011 when its then president and general manager, Craig Fravel, chose to leave Del Mar to take over as the president and chief executive officer of Breeders’ Cup, the Kentucky-based organization that conducts racing’s series of championship races each fall.

Previously, Dado, 47, had carried the title of senior vice president, marketing. He had originally come to work at Del Mar in 2001. Rubinstein, 43, had been listed as senior vice president, development. His full-time starting date at the track was in 1995.

Ernst, 57, currently carries the title of executive vice president, finance and chief financial officer. He first started at Del Mar in 1991. Robbins, 59, is the track’s executive vice president, racing and industry relations, as well as it racing secretary. His first season at Del Mar was in 1968.

Del Mar’s upcoming 74th summer race meet is scheduled to open on July 17 and run through September 4.
