Kentucky Commissioner Guilfoil Honored With ARCI’s Len Foote Award

Marc A. Guilfoil, executive director of the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission, has been honored with the Len Foote Award from the Association of Racing Commissioners International (ARCI).

ARCI is a nonprofit trade association comprised of governmental regulators of horse and greyhound racing in North America. The Len Foote Award is presented each year to an executive director in recognition of exemplary service and contribution to racing integrity. Peers select the award recipient.

“The Public Protection Cabinet (PPC) congratulates Marc on this outstanding recognition,” said PPC Secretary David A. Dickerson. “He serves Kentucky and the sport of horse racing with integrity, professionalism and fairness. This is a well-deserved acknowledgement.”

First awarded in the early 1990s, this is the second time an executive director from Kentucky has received this award.  Former KHRC Executive Director Lisa E. Underwood, who died last December, received the award in 2009.
