New York Racing Association President and COO Ellen McClain announced Jan. 25 that she is resigning from her role, and board leaders said they would immediately begin a national search to find a replacement.

"I look forward to working with you during a transition period," McClain told the NYRA board during an open meeting. She had replaced Charles Hayward, who was fired during last year's takeout betting scandal that cost bettors millions of dollars. McClain, who also serves as chief operating officer, was not the Cuomo administration's choice to remain on as the leader of NYRA, administration officials said last year.
