NYRA president & CEO resigns


The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) Board of Directors announced that it has accepted the resignation of NYRA CEO & President Chris Kay, effectively immediately.

To ensure continuity of operations, David O’Rourke, NYRA’s Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer, has been named interim CEO.

Sources told the Times Union his resignation comes after the board got wind of allegations that NYRA employees may have been doing yard work at his home.

Kay was named President and CEO in 2013.
