Roark reelected by horsemen


John Roark was reelected to a two-year term as president of the National Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association at the group's convention on Sunday in Cleveland. Roark, who also is the president of the Texas Horsemen's partnership and a board member of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, defeated Linda Mills, president of the Florida HBPA, in the election, and said he will make combating the piracy of simulcast signals by offshore betting parlors the focus of his second term.
