Two National Racing Museum Trustees Named

Banke and Cantey appointed to National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame board.

Barbara Banke, who operates Stonestreet Stables, and retired broadcaster Charlsie Cantey have been appointed to the board of trustees of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

The appointments were announced May 1 by museum president Stella F. Thayer.

Banke and her late husband, Jess Jackson, built Jackson Family Wines and established Stonestreet, a prominent racing and breeding entity. Among the horses campaigned by Stonestreet were Curlin  and Rachel Alexandra, both Horse of the Year award winners.
