Frank Clark Giving Up Golden Gate Fields Post Bert W. Railey Will Take Over General Managership Next Year ALBANY, Calif., June 4. — A change in the general managership of Golden Gate Fields will become effective January. 15th of next year when Frank W. Clark, who for the past five years has successfully directed the operations of the East Bay track, relinquishes his duties to Bert W. Railey. Railey has been a prominent businessman in Northern California for many years and was formerly vice-president of the Palmolive-Peet Company on the West Coast. He has been on the board of directors of Golden Gate Fields for the past two years and is not unfamiliar with his new duties. ; Railey is actively coming into the operations picture at Golden Gate Fields for their forthcoming fall meeting this year, having been appointed managing director. Clark advised his board of directors early this year that he would like to be relieved of his full time duties as general manager to enable him to devote more time to his other interests, some of which are in Southern California. He plans to remain active in an advisory capacity and a mem- * ber of the board of directors. With the new managerial setup next year may come a change in the official racing family at the Albany track, however, at this time no change is anticipated for the 1951 fall meeting.
