LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Horse Park Commission has chosen Gov. Steve Beshear’s deputy chief of staff, Jamie Link, as the new executive director of the park.

The park said a start date for Link will be set later.

Link jointed the Parks Department in 1985 as a business manager and was chief executive officer for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in 2010 at the Kentucky Horse Park.

He has been deputy secretary for the Finance Cabinet and the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet. He was deputy executive director of the horse park in 2006.

Link said in a news release from the park he is looking forward to the post.

The park’s competition facilities are home to the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event and the National Horse Show. The park houses the National Horse Center.
