from Breeders' Cup

William S. Farish Jr. was unanimously re-elected as Breeders’ Cup chairman, and R.D. Hubbard selected as vice chairman, during the third-quarter meeting of the Breeders’ Cup board of directors Sept. 5.

In other business, following up on its recently announced policy to ban anabolic steroids from the World Championships, Breeders' Cup 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.

This year's two-day World Championships is slated for Oct. 24-25 at Santa Anita Park in California.
