Maryland Racing Commission Chairman Michael Algeo announced at a Sept. 24 meeting that it would be his last in the role of chairman, but that he will remain a member of the commission.
Algeo said Emmet Davitt, appointed to the MRC by Gov. Larry Hogan in February of this year, would take over as chairman. Davitt is a former state prosecutor who stepped down in late 2019 after almost 10 years on the job.
Algeo, a former associate judge for Montgomery County Circuit Court, was appointed in December 2016 along with businessman and racehorse owner Konrad Wayson, who also was reappointed to a four-year term on the MRC.
