TDN's Weisbord Named Galbreath Award Winner

Barry Weisbord
Barry Weisbord, president and co-publisher of the Thoroughbred Daily News, has been named the 24th recipient of the John Galbreath Award for Entrepreneurship by officials at the University of Louisville’s Equine Industry Program. The award was first given to Kentucky breeder and industry leader John Bell in 1990.
While a student at the University of Pennsylvania, Weisbord worked as a hotwalker for trainers Walter Kelley and Allen Jerkens, then acquired a trainer’s license and maintained a small stable before founding Executive Bloodstock Management, a bloodstock portfolio management company, in 1979.

In 1983, Weisbord and partners launched the Matchmakers Breeders’ Exchange, a stock exchange for the trade of stallion seasons meshed with a high-end social experience. Weisbord is also credited with conceiving of and directing the American Championship Racing Series, a series of major races for older horses for which he attracted national television coverage and created industry ‘buzz’ in the pre- full-card simulcast era.

In 1993, Weisbord purchased a controlling interest in the Thoroughbred Daily News and relocated it from Lexington to New Jersey, and has built it into the industry’s leading trade daily, with over 11,000 individual readers worldwide.

More recently, Weisbord became aware of horse-tracking technology called Trakus, which simplifies watching athletic competitions through graphic displays. Trakus was originally used for hockey, but Weisbord was instrumental in adapting the technology to horse racing and now serves as Trakus chairman. The Trakus system, which follows every individual horse throughout a race, displaying its position along with distances traveled during the race, is now in use at such major North American tracks as Woodbine, Churchill Downs, Keeneland, Gulfstream Park, Santa Anita and Belmont, as well as in several foreign locations, such as Dubai, Singapore, and Turkey.

Weisbord’s crowning achievement as an owner came courtesy of Hall of Famer and Eclipse Award winner Safely Kept, who he campaigned to a victory in the 1990 GI Breeders’ Cup Sprint. He currently serves on the Breeders’ Cup Board of Directors and is co-chair of its Enhanced Experience Committee. Weisbord will receive the award at a dinner in his honor at the University of Louisville’s University Club on the evening of October 24, 2013.
