Both Savin and Romanik, who was in Kentucky for the Breeders' Cup, confirmed published reports of the change, though neither would comment further pending a press release from Magna Entertainment Corp., parent company of the Hallandale, Fla. track.
The 40-year-old Savin is currently the executive director of the National Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association and has been involved in racing as an owner and horsemen's activist for nearly two decades.
It is expected that Romanik will resume the position of legal counsel for Gulfstream, the role he played prior to March 17 when he was promoted to president, replacing Doug Donn.
Gulfstream will open on Jan. 3 for its 10-week 2001 meet.
