were extremely saddened to learn of Mr. Steinbrenner's passing," said NYRA
President and CEO Charles Hayward. "He had great enthusiasm for thoroughbred
racing, and contributed his time and energy to the industry, both as an owner
and as a NYRA Board Member. His Kinsman Stable left an indelible mark on New
York racing, including Bellamy Road's remarkable 17 ½ -length victory in the
2005 Wood Memorial, and his sensational filly Dream Supreme's four New York
graded wins. His passion for the sport will be missed."
