New York breeders elect new officers


The New York Thoroughbred Breeders elected a new slate of officers Monday. The 11-member board unanimously re-elected Barry Ostrager as president, Tom Gallo as vice president, and Vivien Malloy as secretary/treasurer.

"In 2010 NYTB will continue to be extremely active concerning major challenges facing the racing and breeding industries," Ostrager said, "specifically the inaction by the state in implementing the VLTs [video lottery terminals] at Aqueduct and the crisis caused by the recent bankruptcy filing by NYC OTB."
