Dr. Elizabeth “Libby” Daniel, who took over as state veterinarian for the Maryland Racing Commission in January 2017, has begun her duties as Equine Welfare and Medical Director for the MRC.
A 2013 review of the MRC by the state Department of Legislative Services recommended creation of the position, which was endorsed by the MTHA and Maryland Jockey Club. Funding became available in 2018 through legislative action.
Daniel will continue serving as state veterinarian.
