Greg Stiles is HISA’s Racetrack Accreditation Manager and the liaison to all tracks in completing their Racetrack Safety Accreditation Audits.
A native of Omaha, Nebraska, Stiles was first introduced to horse racing at his home track Ak-Sar-Ben. During high school summers, he worked as a hotwalker and groom and quickly found a love for the backside community.
Most recently, Stiles served as the Racing Enforcement Manager for the Arizona Department of Gaming Racing Division from 2014 through 2021. Responsible for the state of Arizona’s enforcement of horse and dog racing rules and regulations, he supervised the regulatory team at Arizona racetracks, which included stewards, investigation teams, licensing personnel and veterinarian staff. He was the key contact and liaison to the Arizona Racing Commission and to national and local horse racing constituent groups including the Association of Racing Commissioners International, the Arizona HPBA and the Arizona Thoroughbred Breeders Association.
Prior to that, Stiles was publisher of several free circulation magazines in the Phoenix area, one of which was Arizona Parenting Magazine, a 70,000 circulation magazine for raising families. He also consulted with small-to-medium-sized businesses, providing marketing and public relations strategic plans to support revenue growth.
In 2016, he attended the Racing Officials Accreditation Program (ROAP) and continues to maintain his credentials as an accredited steward. Stiles joined HISA in June of 2022, and is based out of Phoenix, Arizona when he’s not working trackside.
