Janney succeeds Farish as Jockey Club vice chairman


New York, NY (Sports Network) - The Jockey Club has announced that William S. Farish has left his position as vice chairman and has been succeeded by Stuart S. Janney III. The organization's chairman Ogden Mills Phipps made the announcement after Monday's meeting of the Board of Stewards.

Farish served as vice chairman since 1983 and will continue on the Board of Stewards until the end of his term in 2013. He became a member of the The Jockey Club in 1970.

Janney has been with the organization since 1992. He will continue as chairman of The Jockey Club's Thoroughbred Safety Committee.

The Jockey Club is the breed registry for all thoroughbred horses in North America. It is responsible for maintaining The American Stud Book, which includes all thoroughbreds foaled in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico as well as thoroughbreds imported into those countries from nations around the world that maintain similar thoroughbred registries.
