Months of turmoil within the Virgin Islands Horse Racing Commission came to a head late last week with the removal of former chairman and St. Croix representative Jay Watson from the year-old board.

Watson, who has been challenging the Aug. 30 vote that ended his tenure as Horse Racing Commission chairman, was removed from the Horse Racing Commission by Gov. Albert Bryan Jr. “for cause” on Friday, Government House spokesman Richard Motta Jr. confirmed.
