Pitts quits Racing Commission post

May 28, 1992|By Ross Peddicord

Clinton Pitts Jr., an associate steward at Maryland's thoroughbred tracks, has submitted his resignation to the Maryland Racing Commission and is expected to take a new job as the Jockey Club steward at New York Racing Association tracks.

Maryland Racing Commission chairman John H. Mosner Jr. confirmed yesterday that Pitts had submitted his resignation May 26, due to take effect Oct. 13.

Pitts, who had been the administrative or chief steward at Laurel and Pimlico race courses, was reassigned to associate steward after he clashed with the racing board last fall.

Pitts could not be reached for comment.
