For the Love of Horses
A Pre-Hambletonian Celebration

August 4, 2011

Commissioner's Club at the New Meadowlands Stadium
East Rutherford, NJ



Featuring Keynote Speaker

Brian Cashman

Senior Vice President and General Manager of the New York Yankees

"The work of the Equine Science Center has a measurable and direct impact on all users of horses, irrespective of discipline and breed," Karyn Malinowski, Director, Equine Science Center.


 There are plenty of reasons to celebrate as the Equine Science Center marks it tenth anniversary in 2011. Within the short course of a decade, the Center has risen to prominent status locally and globally, and is recognized as a leader in equine research and education. The Center is a hub of discovery, learning, and outreach whose sole focus is the health and well-being of horses. 


The Equine Science Center’s vision for the next ten years is to provide global leadership in the discovery of better ways to manage horses and horse farms, and develop future leaders to ensure the sustainability of the horse industry. The Center will continue to be the most effective proponent for the economic viability and sustainability of the horse industry in New Jersey.

Brian Cashman

Brian McGuire Cashman has literally grown up in the Yankees family. He joined the organization in 1986 as a 19-year-old intern in the Minor league and Scouting Department and now commands one of the most demanding jobs in sports. Over the course of 24 seasons with the team, he has earned five World Series rings, including four as General Manager.


Mr. Cashman assumed his current post on February 3, 1998. At age 31 he became the second-youngest General Manager in baseball history. In his first season he became the youngest-ever GM to win a World Series, and with championships in 1999 and 2000, he became the only GM in baseball history to win world titles in each of his first three seasons. Among his peers, Cashman has achieved unparalleled success with a lifetime winning percentage of .605, the highest of any GM with five seasons of experience since 1950. Now in his 14th season, Cashman has the third-longest tenure among all general managers in baseball and is the longest serving Yankees GM since Ed Barrow led the team from 1920-1945. In all, his clubs have claimed 10 Division titles and six American League championships to go along with four World Series titles. His feat of reaching the playoffs in each of his first 10 seasons remains unmatched in Baseball history.


Mr. Cashman has been honored as “Executive of the Year” four times: by the Boston Chapter of the BBWAA in 2000 and 2009; and in 1999 and 2003 by the New Jersey Sportswriters’ Association. In 2001 he received his third consecutive “40 Under 40” Award presented by Street & Smith’s Sports Business Journal to recognize the top 40 people under the age of 40 who have made the greatest impact in the sports business industry.


Born on July 3, 1967, in Rockville Center, New York, Cashman grew up in Lexington, Kentucky. Mr. Cashman and his wife, Mary, have a daughter, Grace Eva, and a son, Theodore John.
