The Breeders' Cup announced today that Barry Weisbord has resigned from its Board of Directors, citing increased outside business and family duties for his decision.
In a letter Tuesday morning to Breeders' Cup President and CEO Craig Fravel, Weisbord said, “The increasing need for me to travel extensively for Trakus around the world, and my desire to try to take in as much of my young daughter's activities at home have put me in a situation where I feel I cannot devote the same level and attention to Breeders' Cup board activities as I should. I have all the faith in the world in the current board, and wish them all the best in carrying out their duties. I love the Breeders' Cup and want nothing more than to see it succeed and prosper.”
Weisbord, who is president and co-publisher of Thoroughbred Daily News, has served as a Director since 2012, and was elected as a Breeders' Cup Member in 2008.
“Barry has served with great distinction and dedication to the Breeders' Cup and to our Board,” said Bill Farish, Breeders' Cup Chairman. “He has worked tirelessly to elevate and enhance the hospitality experience at the Breeders' Cup on an international scale for our owners and fans, helping to make our event the best that it can be. We will miss Barry's creative energy and enthusiasm for our Championships, and wish him well in his current and future endeavors.”
