Michael Costanzo Appointed Racing Secretary At Gulfstream Park

Gulfstream Park announced Thursday the appointment of Michael Costanzo to racing secretary.

Costanzo, the assistant racing secretary the past year, replaces outgoing secretary Dave Bailey.

“We’re delighted with the work Mike has done for more than 10 years at Gulfstream. He’s excelled at all positions and he has a great understanding of the industry,” said Mike Lakow, Vice President of Racing at Gulfstream. “His hard work and dedication has earned him this promotion, which is well deserved. We are confident Mike will build on our year-round program.”

Costanzo, a native of Chicago who has worked in the racing office since 2009, had served as stakes coordinator at Gulfstream for five years before becoming assistant racing secretary last year. He served as the editor of the Breeders’ Cup Notes Team for five years and also is the former public relations manager at Calder Race Course.

A product of the University of Arizona Race Track Industry Program, Costanzo’s first job in the industry was in 2000 as an admission office intern at Arlington Park. He was also the former public address announcer during spring training for the Chicago White Sox and Arizona Diamondbacks.
