Ryan Elected President Of Consignors And Commercial Breeders Association

The new officers and board members for the Consignors and Commercial Breeders Association (CBA) were installed at its most recent meeting.

Allaire Ryan of Lane’s End Farm will serve as president, Walker Hancock of Claiborne Farm has been named vice president and Mark Taylor of Taylor Made Farm will serve as treasurer. Outgoing president Gray Lyster will continue to serve the organization as past president.

The board consists of 15 members: eight from the Top 20 consignors and seven from other consignors and commercial breeders. Each year, a portion of the board rotates off and new board members are appointed to fill those positions from among eligible CBA members.

The current board members from the Top 20 consignors are: Conrad Bandoroff, Denali Stud; Carrie Brogden, Machmer Hall Sales; Neal Clarke, Atlas Farm/Bedouin Bloodstock; Liz Crow, ELiTE Sales; Walker Hancock, Claiborne Farm; Adrian Regan, Hunter Valley Farm; Allaire Ryan, Lane’s End Farm and Mark Taylor, Taylor Made Farm.

Board members from other consignors/commercial breeders are: Tom Hamm, Three Chimneys Farm; Ben Henley, Airdrie Stud; Derek MacKenzie, Vinery Sales; Zach Madden, Buckland Sales; Gray Lyster, Ashview Farm; Mark Toothaker, Spendthrift Farm and Sean Tugel, Gainesway Farm.

“The CBA owes a debt of gratitude to outgoing president Gray Lyster for the time and service he dedicated to this organization and I’m delighted he will continue to contribute to our cause as past president,” Ryan said. “The CBA is a vital body in today’s marketplace, and I am motivated to achieve the goals we have set in order to maintain the best sales environment possible for consignors and breeders.”

The CBA is a trade organization with more than 300 members. The association’s membership accounts for over 80 percent of the annual auction revenue in North America, as either breeder or consignor. The CBA works democratically on behalf of every consignor and commercial breeder, large and small, to provide representation and a constructive, unified voice related to sales issues, policies and procedures. The Association’s initiatives are designed to encourage a fair and expanding marketplace for all who breed, buy or sell thoroughbreds.

The association was founded in 2005 and is based in Lexington, Ky.
