Ky. Horse Racing Commission's executive director assumes chairmanship of international group

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, April 17, 2014 4:01 AM EDT

The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission's executive director has assumed the chairmanship of an international industry group.

John T. Ward is taking over as chairman of the Association of Racing Commissioners International.

RCI is made up of regulators of horse and greyhound racing in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Jamaica and Trinidad-Tobago.

The organization's members help ensure the integrity of racing and pari-mutuel wagering.

Ward says his role as chairman will allow him to work even more closely with global leaders in the horse racing industry.

Gov. Steve Beshear named Ward as executive director of the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission in February 2012.

Ward is a Kentucky Derby-winning trainer with Monarchos in 2001. He has also trained winners in the Kentucky Oaks and the Breeders' Cup.
