William S. Farish, Jr., was unanimously re-elected as Breeders’ Cup Chairman today at the third quarter meeting of the Breeders’ Cup Board of Directors. R.D. Hubbard was unanimously elected Vice Chairman.

In other business, following up on its recently announced policy to ban steroids from its World Championships, Stakes program and Breeders’ Cup Challenge races, the Board agreed to a three-year renewal to help fund the Equine Drug Research Institute of the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation. The goal of EDRI is to conduct research that creates new drug tests for equine laboratories to improve the quality of drug testing in horse racing.
