JANNEY: A ‘HOPEFUL’ VERDICT

Jockey Club Release — Statement from Stuart S. Janney III Chairman of The Jockey Club:

I am pleased to see all of the effort and time spent by federal agents, prosecutors, and others who have worked so hard on this case be rewarded with a guilty verdict, and I thank them for their commitment. It is highly encouraging to know that those who cheat and endanger our sport’s athletes, both equine and human, face meaningful and life-changing punishments.

Clearly, this verdict will serve as a deterrent to others and it also provides hope for those who want to see true change in the racing industry. This step forward, one of many recently, reflects our steadfast determination towards maintaining the highest levels of integrity and safety for racing’s athletes and customers.
