Racing promoter Supreme Ventures Racing and Entertainment Limited (SVREL), a subsidiary of parent company Supreme Ventures Limited (SVL) - lottery operators, now has a full board of directors made up of five members and, as announced previously, the board is headed by executive chairman, Michael Bernard.

Bernard's appointment was made public late last year but the full board was not announced at that time, as approval was required by the board of the mother company, SVL.

That approval has been given, and Bernard, a long-standing owner and breeder, now has with him Dr Graham Brown, Richard Azan, Ann-Dawn Young Sang and Dennis Chung.

Dr Brown, a veterinarian, is the current president of the Jamaica Racehorse Owners' Association (JROA). He is expected to relinquish that post in order to take up the board position at SVREL.

“As a matter of propriety, I have to resign my position as president of the (JROA), but I will continue to be a proud owner and a regular member of the association,” Dr Brown stated, while wishing the JROA all the best in its future endeavours.

Azan is an owner, trainer and breeder and, like Dr Brown and Bernard, was a part of Caymanas Racing and Entertainment Limited, the group that placed a bid with the Government during the recent divestment exercise for Caymanas Track Limited, which eventually saw SVL being chosen to take over the reins of horse racing promotions in Jamaica.

Ann-Dawn Young Sang is the current president and chief executive officer at SVL, while Chung was recently appointed as SVL's chief financial officer. Previously, Chung served as chief executive officer of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica.
