John Hensley is the track director of District 11. Spending his early childhood years in Baltimore, Md., he formed an affinity for harness racing with family trips to Laurel and Freestate. After relocating to Delaware in the late 1970s, family ownership of horses racing on the Delaware circuit at Brandywine, Dover and Harrington furthered that affinity. Upon graduation from Wesley College in 1993 with a B.S. in Engineering, he briefly pursued a professional baseball career before returning to the business of harness racing in 1997 at Harrington Raceway. He has held various positions in the racing industry including television analyst, simulcast director, and has held his racing secretary license since 2003. He received his M.B.A. from Wilmington University in 2008, is a member of various local organizations in his home state and was inducted into the Wesley College Athletic Hall of Fame in 2014. He is in his 20th year at Dover Downs and is the general manager and senior director of horse racing and sports.
