Stanislawzyk Named New Racing Secretary

Monmouth Park will have a new look to its racing office when the 51-day meet gets under way on Saturday, May 11, with Gerry Stanislawzyk taking over as the racing secretary, it was announced today.

Stanislawzyk, 52, has served as Monmouth Park’s assistant racing secretary since 2016. A native of Wakefield, Mass. who currently resides in nearby Colts Neck, Stanislawzyk has spent the past 10 winters as the stakes coordinator at Tampa Bay Downs.

He will assume the duties previously held by John Heims, who is moving into a new management role at the track. Heims previously held the dual roles of director of racing and racing secretary.

“It has been my dream since I started working in different racing offices to someday become the racing secretary,” said Stanislawzyk. “I have had the privilege to work and learn from some of the best racing secretaries out there. To each and every racing secretary I worked under I want to say ‘thank you.’ I would not be where I am today without each and every one of them.

“I can’t thank Monmouth Park management enough for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime. I am so excited to get the meet going. I want to make it one to remember.”

Other changes in the racing office will see Troy Matty, a recent graduate of St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, taking over Stanislawzyk’s former role as assistant racing secretary after spending the past seven summers working in Monmouth Park’s racing office.

In addition, Walter Cicero, who has worked in the racing office the past six years, will shift into a new role as stakes coordinator for the track’s 79th season.
