Zayat Pledge Update

Posted May 16, 2016

Statement from Alicia Wincze Hughes: As president of the National Turf Writers and Broadcasters Association, it has come to my attention that an industry publication is taking information from our membership newsletter out of context.

We have and continue to work with Ahmed Zayat on the implementation of scholarship programs that are possible as a result of his generous pledge. The most recent conversation transpired after our Kentucky Derby week meeting, and talks are to continue following the Preakness Stakes. We are grateful to Mr. Zayat for his generosity and look forward to working together to make these exciting programs happen.
