Dennis Drazin is going to be inducted into the Sports Betting Hall of Fame.
Drazin will join former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Las Vegas bookmaking legend Art Manteris in the latest intake of the Hall of Fame.
Drazin has a long association with horse racing in the state of New Jersey over the last five decades, first as a fan, then as a racehorse owner and currently as the CEO of Darby Development, the operator of Monmouth Park.
Drazin commented, “Horse racing and betting have been a big part of my life ever since my dad brought me to the races in the 1960s. It’s fantastic to be recognised by my peers for something I enjoy doing so much.”
Sue Schneider, Community Director at SBC, added, “In an industry that isn’t shy of them, Dennis is a tenacious character and he played a key part in getting sports betting legalised in New Jersey. He’s definitely earned his berth in the Hall of Fame.”
