Terry Wallace, the former voice of Oaklawn Racing & Gaming in Hot Springs, has died after health complications, officials said.

Oaklawn spokesperson Jennifer Hoyt confirmed Thursday that Wallace died due to complications with supranuclear palsy, a brain disorder.

Wallace, a member of the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame, retired in 2011 after spending 37 years in the announcer's booth at Oaklawn. He called 20,191 consecutive races at the park between 1975 and 2011.
