In Depth: Nicholson, Thomason Reflect On What's Next For Keeneland

Apr 18, 2012

Keeneland Racetrack in Lexington will undergo a changing of the guard late this summer with Wednesday’s announced retirement of President and CEO Nick Nicholson.  Nicholson says he’s been thinking about stepping aside for some time now.   Effective September first, current Vice President and CFO Bill Thomason will assume his new post.  Both chatted about the transition with WUKY's Josh James.

Thomason will be Keeneland's seventh president. He joined the leadership team in June 2010 and was previously financial and administrative manager at Mill Ridge Farm for 28 years.
