In October 2011, McClain, who boasts a 20-year track record in media finance and operations, was promoted to NYRA executive vice president and chief operating officer, becoming both the first woman and the first African-American to serve in this role for the company.
"Ellen is very deserving of this honor and I join everyone at NYRA in congratulating her," said Charles Hayward, NYRA president and chief executive officer.
