The day before the New York Racing Association conducted “Fabulous Fillies” Day at Saratoga, it announced that yet another white male had been appointed to its Board of Directors.
In its almost three years of existence, the Board created by Governor Andrew Cuomo and legislative leaders has had 20 directors. The Governor makes eight appointees, legislative leaders make four and the “old” NYRA makes five
The one woman appointed resigned. The remaining 19 have all been white men.
