Frank Gabriel Jr: I hope I was able to give something back to the UAE

23-Mar-2014 :

Dubai: Frank Gabriel Jr will be leaving the UAE after nine fruitful years at the helm of racing.

Highly respected for his impeccable work ethic and charisma as CEO of the Dubai Racing Club, Gabriel had, among several other accomplishments, overseen the highly successful transition from Nad Al Sheba Race Course to the iconic Meydan Racecourse in 2010.

With a clear mandate to raise the profile of racing in the Emirates, Gabriel certainly outdid himself in propelling the sport to the highest level on the global stage. Meydan now represents the fastest growing equine facility in the world and also boasts the world’s richest race meeting — the $27.5 million (Dh101 million) Dubai World Cup on March 29.

Gulf News spoke to Gabriel, who will join the New York Racing Association Inc (NYRA) as racing secretary for Belmont Park and Saratoga Race Course upon his return to America.
