Jack Fisher, a record-setting trainer and a prominent member of the steeplechase community, has been elected president of the Temple Gwathmey Steeplechase Foundation. Based in Monkton, Md., Fisher succeeds Charles C. Fenwick Jr., who had completed his maximum term as a foundation trustee.
Also elected by the foundation’s Board of Trustees were Emily Day, a Virginia horsewoman and member of the National Steeplechase Association’s Safety Committee, as vice president; Blair Wyatt, a Maryland horsewoman and Maryland Hunt Cup-winning rider, as secretary; and Michael E. Hoffman, a steeplechase owner and rider who also rode a Hunt Cup winner, as treasurer.
Fisher assumes the Temple Gwathmey Steeplechase Foundation presidency after completing his eighth straight year as the sport’s champion trainer. In 2019, he established a record for annual earnings, nearly $1.6-million, and shattered the mark he set in 2017. He also serves on the National Steeplechase Association’s Board of Directors.
