Keeneland Association president and CEO Bill Thomason announced Monday that Amy Gregory, a 30-year veteran of the Thoroughbred industry, has been named the Lexington company's director of communications.
She succeeds Julie Balog, who left Keeneland to become vice president of marketing and communications at the YMCA of Central Kentucky.
Gregory is currently media relations manager at Keeneland, working with the company's racing, sales and simulcast operations.
She is a graduate of the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville's Louis D. Brandeis School of Law. She began her career as a writer for the Thoroughbred Record trade publication before moving to Breeders' Cup Limited as a communications specialist.
Gregory, a native of Henderson, begins her new role effective immediately.
