Long-time racing industry executive Todd Bowker has been named general manager of Premier Turf Club, which operates a wagering platform that hubs through Oregon.
The company Nov. 17 said Bowker will oversee operations and technology development for BetPTC.com, Premier Turf Club’s advance deposit wagering site. He will report to managing general partner Wes Berman and assume full operational control of the Oregon-licensed ADW platform effective immediately.
Bowker succeeds Dwayne Zuzik, who announced his departure from the company in October.
“Todd brings a wealth of experience in account wagering and technology to Premier Turf Club,” Berman said in a statement. “We are excited to have him join our company, and feel his background in having operated one of the largest advance deposit wagering companies in the United States makes him a perfect fit for our future plans for Premier Turf Club.”
Bowker spent the past several years serving as a consultant for clients in and out of the pari-mutuel wagering industry. Prior to starting his consulting business, Bowker led the start-up and also served as general manager of the ADW company AmericaTab, which later was sold to Churchill Downs Inc.
Bowker serves on the Thoroughbred Racing Association 2020 Committee.
