Read today in the daily herald that sun. will be his last day working @ Haw.  Article says he is going to work for Midwest T-Breds.  Perhaps Jim will be their next 30% trainer.  Good luck to Jim.  Continued bad news for Hawthorne.  They are so  screw.

Sad news. Maybe better for Jim? Hopefully he left on his terms. Great guy! I had fun doing the Jim Vs. with him and he always took time to talk to us when we were in the paddock before races with our horses.

If true, I don't know how Hawthorne will survive without him. He does TOO much for any one person there (and that is a huge compliment to Jim).

Who's next Peter Galassi? Wonder if this is a bad omen for the tracks getting slots. Seems to me Jim would be sitting on a nice mgt. position and a raise in pay if slots were right around the corner?Huh??

I don't know if this is a statement about the likelihood of slots or just the realization that there is limited upside in any family business if you have the wrong last name.

Here is the DRF article; the position isn't quite defined.

Good for Jim. Really will be interesting to see how Hawthorne copes here on out.

http://www.drf.com/news/hawthorne-assistant-gm-miller-leaving-work-midwest-thoroughbreds

This is a major blow for Hawthorne, following on the rough fall season they have had.  The article says they are not sure how is job will be filled, whether they get somebody else or absorb his duties among the existing staff.  Good luck on that one!

This news brings up some interesting questions.  Did Jim just get burned out by the many responsibilities of his job, added to the stress of this season?  Is his position with Midwest such a lucrative option that he could not pass on it?  While Jim certainly knows track operations, public relations, handicapping, and has been a horse owner, how does all this translate to the huge national racing operation of Midwest?  To my knowledge, he has not been a hands-on caretaker or trainer of horses or experienced in the breeding end of the business.  Does he have a bloodstock background?  How do they use him?  Are they a syndicate that needs a PR man to find other owners or create an image?

I could definitely see him going to another track, but this move I do not understand.  Maybe he developed some kind of rapport with Midwest over the summer when they leased Hawthorne's facilities which led to this new connection.  Could he help redefine Midwest into an even more super operation?

One thing I know is that he should have way less stress in this job and be a lot more appreciated.  I wish him the best and will miss him.

Jim's been in basically the same job for a number of years, and as another poster pointed out, if your name's not Carey there's only so far you're going there. Or maybe he's just burned out by the constant criticism from 1,000 peanut galleries on every single niggling issue. Not to mention if the tracks get slots there's a lot of new slots tracks that decide they need to bring in a "gaming man" to run things, and push the racing people aside. Who knows?

It's Jim's decision for whatever reason, and Midwest Thoroughbreds, so best of luck to both of them and thanks much to Jim for all he's done for all of us.

One thing I don't like about Midwest is that the farmers get lots of headaches from purchasers because Midwest has exclusive rights to Hay, straw and feed coming from those farms. Then if you go around their back, they have lawyers on your back.

Why would anyone try to "go around the back" of an exclusive supplier deal they had signed, anyhow? Are these farmer not trustworthy business people?

Jim isn't that old. As a matter of fact, he's only a few years older than me. I'm 37.

Jim does a lot for Hawthorne and it's funny seeing him having the title as only ASSISTANT General Manager, with Tim Carey having President AND General Manager. Jim, although he is a front-lines guy, seems to do most of the work.

Like beobob said, it's a family business and there's not much room after the level he attained...only more work...

The less time spent at the workplace probably will be good for Jim as he does have young kids to care for, so this will probably give him more time at home. I imagine it will be better pay-wise too.

Hawthorne....yikes, if they don't get someone as capable as him (or MULTIPLE people are probably needed to fill his position) that place will start creeping downhill.

I like the idea of bringing in a fan or full-time track-goer with some media experience to do the pre-race show. And maybe start paying Joe K to do the Morning line. What is Jessica Pacheco up to? No longer on GP feed, maybe HAW can pick her up.

My guess is he will be doing the general managing (office stuff) of midwests operations.  He will not be involved with training or breeding as many posters here have more experience at that end of the game.  As for Jessica coming to Hawthorne -  bang head  lets get real!!!!!

They handled it initially just like every other track. Unfortunately some horseman or his help tracked it out of that first barn and infected others.

Illinois has apparently learned some lessons. The State vet has laid down the law at Balmoral to prevent possible infection from horses coming in from Sports Creek (where they, too, isolated the initial barn, but did not stop racing.)

I saw Jim yesterday at HAW on his final day.  He was his usual classy self and spent time with everyone who approached to wish him well.  He seemed like he was ready for his new adventure and was equally sad to be leaving HAW.

Since we can't seem to have a thread here without some sort of conspiracy theory, I will add my own....is this the next step in Midwest's take over of Hawthorne?

That's just great.

Let's see any of YOU geniuses run your business / barns the way you normally do, have some sort of major disruption or tragedy come down the pipe, then see what you all do to sort of the hundreds of suggestions and ideas (of which a solid 80% will be absolute rubbish), and then implement the correct solutions instantaneously, with no mistakes and no backtracking.

Hawthorne and all involved will undoubtedly learn much from the virus outbreak and develop better procedures should it happen again, God forbid, but...the level, tone, and tenor of the criticism here over the past 2 1/2 months has been mostly misguided at best, and simply cheap shot dirty work at its worst.

Viruses are living organisms, clever little buggers that mutate and adapt far faster than we simple humans can usually figure out its next moves. Eight horses died? We are lucky it wasn't 800, what with the piss poor way most of the backstretch followed the suggested disinfection procedures alone.

Now...my challenge stands: all of you self-appointed geniuses here, who just KNEW every "right" move that should have been made, and when, it's time for you to STEP UP and write a full set of procedures that should be followed by everyone -- the track, barns, vets, grooms, etc., all the way down to the hay truck driver, in the face of a future outbreak.

I don't have a plan of how it should have been handled but obviously some thing probably weren't handled the way they should have. Whether Miller handled things the right way or wrong way, it doesn't matter. Would someone else have done things differently, who knows?  But there are at least 4 dead horses and a lot of horsemen probably in a tough situation.  When you have a situation like this people step down or loose their jobs and it doesn't matter what business your in.

Sure, it's obvious *now*, but my point -- which you are helping me make -- is that it's easy to call it in from the cheap seats, doubly so if you have no risk of suffering if you are wrong.

This is no different than armchair QB's going back and second guessing the efforts made to deal with Superstorm Sandy, the 9/11 attacks, the Vietnam War, etc...most everyone you ask is convinced that they had all the right ideas, and could have done a better job at managing those situations.

(Then ask those same people what they have ever been in charge of; most haven't had to decide anything much more significant than "Wendy's or Chinese?" for lunch.)

I hope no one thought I was implying when I posted what I thought could have been done that Jim was responsible in any way. I don't think Hawthorne is to blame in any of this.  Their job is to make $$$ and they do that by providing us a platform to race and make $$$.  If they had refused or fought the state or ITHA any change in protocol they could be blamed, but from what I have heard they did everything that was asked. Hawthorne isn't responsible to look out for what's best for the Horsemen, that job belongs to the ITHA.

Quite clearly, a number of owners and trainers who have been posting here at BTW for the past 2 1/2 months disagree with you, but you are essentially correct.

Hawthorne could only make suggestions; as I said about 2 months ago, if Hawthorne tried to mandate anything specifically relating to how horses were handled, moved, worked, or raced, the line of trainers waiting to tell the Hawthorne brass to kiss their asses would have been from Laramie to Cicero Ave.

LOL.

Laurie Garrett wrote a good and scary book about 15 years ago arguing that mankind was about to be knocked on its collective hindquarters by a bunch of infectious diseases (largerly hemorrhagic fevers a la Ebolavirus) that would make the plague seem like a hangnail.  Fortunately, she was wrong.

So, I understand now.  Hawthorne had no responsibility to provide adequate security either, I guess.

Don't kid yourself.  It wasn't until Nov. 16 that suggestions were made on how to properly sanitize the barns and help.  And that was simply because they were put on the spot, and people were speaking up. 
The ITHA has done very little during this virus.

Some horsemen didn't wait for the Nov. 16 suggestions, but used common sense.  Little good that does when you are stabled with individuals that aren't doing the same.

It does go hand and hand HV, Hawthorne DOES provide us with a track for racing, but we provide them with the horses to conduct their business.  It seems for that reason alone, they should have shown more genuine interest and effort in helping the horsemen....EVEN if it was not their direct responsibility. 
You are NEVER going to get all of the horsemen to stand together....but our elected officials should have stepped up to the plate.  I personally watched owners and trainers asking them to do SOMETHING....so it isnt as if no one asked for help.

Seems Jim's position has something to do with marketing. This Facebook page popped up in the last few days for Midwest:
