With the passing of Dr. Jack Robbins, Chairman of the Board of Oak Tree Racing Association and the last surviving member of the original Board who were the founders of Oak Tree, the horse industry has lost an irreplaceable leader. Jack was a world-renowned veterinarian. As a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School, he was particularly pleased that those who graduated from that school had a V.M.D. after their names whereas most other veterinarian schools use D.V.M. on their degrees.
