NEW YORK — The New York Racing Association (NYRA) announced last Thursday that Frank Gabriel, Senior Vice President of Racing Operations since 2022, has resigned. He’ll be succeeded by Andrew Offerman.

“On behalf of NYRA and the broader racing community in New York, I thank Frank Gabriel for his many contributions to NYRA and to thoroughbred racing,” said David O’Rourke, NYRA President & CEO, in a statement. “Because of Frank’s hard work during a period of great transition, NYRA continues to be defined by its premier racing product and organizational commitment to safety and integrity.”

During his tenure, Gabriel led efforts to implement Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority (HISA) rules and regulations. He was responsible for operational changes that have increased veterinary scrutiny on all horses stabled on NYRA property. Gabriel also adjusted NYRA’s stakes program and purses.

“My time at NYRA has been deeply fulfilling, and I would like to thank the NYRA Board, David O’Rourke, and the entire NYRA team,” Gabriel said. “I wish them the best of luck moving forward.”
