Trainers John Sadler, Art Sherman and Gil Matos have been added to the board of directors of the Thoroughbred Owners of California.
Their appointments, made by the California Thoroughbred Trainers, came as the result of state legislation recently signed by Gov. Gray Davis. The bill gave trainers and their spouses who own horses the right to become members of the TOC and to representation on the board. Previously, they could only participate in the CTT.
The three additions increase the size of the TOC board to 15.
