Joe Gerrity, chairman of the board of Saratoga Gaming and Racing and a Standardbred and Thoroughbred owner for many years, has died at age 88. Details about his death and funeral arrangements are not yet known.

In 1986 Gerrity's homebred Sunset Warrior won the Breeders Crown 2-Year-Old Colt Pace. "I think that was the greatest thrill for Phyllis and me," he said just last year, noting that he shared the experience with his late wife.

Gerrity owned Little Farm in Kinderhook, N.Y., about 50 miles south of Saratoga Springs. Sunset Warrior, however, was retired to Gerrity's smaller farm in Loudonville, where he lived, and there he visited the horse every day.
