Stephen Screnci was elected to the FHBPA Board in 2015. He currently serves as President.
Screnci was introduced to horse racing by a friend. He became an owner in New England in the early 1990s. He began racing in South Florida in 1994. Screnci’s best moments in racing were in 2008 and 2009 when Oilgonewile won two stakes races back-to-back.
Screnci was motivated to run for the Board because he feels his background can help the other directors with today’s challenges. Screnci operates his own law firm in Boca Raton, specializing in contract law.
Screnci also wants to continue increasing purses and working with the breeders in building our state-bred program. Screnci was instrumental in leading the contract committee in negotiations with Gulfstream Park to eliminate the lingering overpayment of the purse account. He was also instrumental in purse increases at both Gulfstream Park and Gulfstream Park West.
Screnci was born in Boston, Mass. He received his Bachelor of Science Degree from Suffolk University. He received his Juris Doctor from New England School of Law. Screnci lives in Boca Raton, Fla. with his wife Cynthia. They have two children, Lia and Bradley.
