Commissioner McCauley Resigns From Illinois Racing Board; Quorum No Longer In Place

Commissioner Tom McCauley has issued his resignation from the Illinois Racing Board, citing “personal reasons,” reports bloodhorse.com. The Board now has just five members remaining, one shy of the quorum necessary to conduct official business like the approval of racing dates for 2021.
