“It’s great to be back with people I know and love,” Tullock said. “I look forward to working with everyone at the Maryland Jockey Club, the 1/ST Racing team, and horsemen throughout North America. Thoroughbred racing in Maryland continues to grow, and I’m very excited about the future.”

Tullock, who grew up in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. and has a sports management degree, spent summers working in the racing office of the New York Racing Association tracks. She began working for the Maryland Jockey Club in 1994 and has worked in nearly every capacity, from claims clerk to paddock and patrol judge, to horse identifier to assistant racing secretary. She graduated from the steward’s accreditation program in 2009. Over the past five months she has served as manager of racing operations for the National Steeplechase Association.

“It’s wonderful to welcome Jillian back to the Maryland Jockey Club,” said Sal Sinatra, President and General Manager of the Maryland Jockey Club. “Jillian has grown up around horses, understands and has great relationships with the horsemen, and will be a wonderful addition to Maryland Thoroughbred racing and the 1/ST Racing team.”

    Best Wishes for Jillian on a new step in her career. She worked with me in New York and in Maryland and is a smart, well educated and well liked horsewoman in every sense of the word. Dad is a veterinarian and Mom is a very talented horsewoman as well. Husband Tim is a former horse trainer and now a successful racing commentator. I expect great things from her and since she learned from one of the best, Georgeanne Hale (no relation) she has been well schooled. Push on, Sincerely Lenny Hale
