Grove City, Ohio - Ohio horsemen are mourning the death of Dr. Albert Gabel. Gabel, a former president of the Ohio Harness Horsemen's Association passed away April 12 at the age of 91.

Gabel graduated from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1954. After a two-year stint in the Air Force, Gabel returned to Ohio State where he earned a master's degree in veterinary anesthesia. He served on the faculty at Ohio State's College of Veterinary Medicine for 33 years. He served as head of the Clinical Equine Section from 1971 until he retired in 1989.

Dr. Gabel trained and drove Standardbred racehorses for 11 years and was named the United States Amateur Driver of the Year in 1995. He was elected president of the Ohio Standardbred Owners and Breeders Association in 1992 and was instrumental in initiating its merger with the Ohio Harness Horsemen's Association.

Dr. Gabel passed peacefully at his home with his beloved wife Lucille by his side.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
