The Horse Owners' Protective Association, an industry advocacy group that was formed in part by activist owner Jess Jackson, has announced a reorganization of its board and an expanded focus of its mission.
Bill Casner has resigned as a director of Horse Owners' Protective Association, saying he is leaving the advocacy group in reaction to comments recently made by fellow founder Jess Jackson in regard to the Sales Integrity Task Force.
Meeting for the first time since its announced resurrection almost three months ago, the revived Sales Integrity Task Force left its May 7 gathering at Keeneland with proclaimed vows of providing quick and satisfying results.
Negotiations over proposed Kentucky legislation that would require disclosure of ownership and veterinary records of horses sold at public auction were held Feb. 13 at Keeneland in Lexington, with some tentative settlement plans discussed that would table the bill for at least a year.
