Courtney C. Reid, who served as the National Steeplechase Association’s manager of racing operations for the past year, has resigned to become senior manager of racing operations for Breeders’ Cup Ltd.

She begins her new position on Tuesday, Feb. 19, at the Lexington, Ky., headquarters of Breeders’ Cup and will report to Dora Delgado, executive vice president of racing and nominations.

“We wish Courtney well in her new position,” said NSA President Guy J. Torsilieri. “She made significant contributions to the NSA in her time with us, especially in the area of technology. She was a self-starter and approached every task assigned to her with enthusiasm and a strong desire to succeed.”

During her time with the NSA, she worked under the supervision of Director of Racing Bill Gallo Jr. “Courtney brought to the NSA her passion for Thoroughbred racing. She was an extremely fast learner in every aspect of our operation, and I have no doubt she will be an asset to the Breeders’ Cup,” he said.

A native of Williamsburg, Va., she holds an undergraduate degree from James Madison University and a master’s degree from Liberty University. She previously worked for the Virginia Racing Commission and joined the NSA as racing operations coordinator in November 2015.
