The California Authority of Racing Fairs has formally recognized a group of owners, breeders and trainers in Northern California to serve as an advisory committee for the upcoming Pleasanton race meet. According to a press release, the committee has been informally in place since the announcement of the closure of Golden Gate Fields. The group will work with representatives in the industry to “address challenges and opportunities in real time and ensure that future CARF decisions have the collective support of the industry stakeholders.”

“Our Advisory Committee has the experience and willingness to galvanize horse racing fans and make our sport economically viable,” said Executive Director of CARF Larry Swartzlander. “This is the beginning of an exciting era for Northern California horse racing.”

The committee consists of the following seven members: Justin Oldfield, George Schmitt, Johnny Taboada, Rob Smolich, Blaine Wright, Jamey Thomas and Gloria Haley.
