•Breeding Entities Pledge Support to TAA, 3/4•
Twenty U.S. commercial breeding entities have signed on to support the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance by donating a portion of their stud fees to support Thoroughbred aftercare in 2015.
The entities that have agreed to donate 25% or more of the advertised stud fee for each stallion on their roster are: Adena Springs, Airdrie Stud, Castleton Lyons, Claiborne Farm, Darby Dan Farm, Darley America, Gainesway, Hill 'n' Dale Farms, Lane's End, Millennium Farms, Ocala Stud, Pin Oak Stud, Ramsey Farm, Sequel Stallions, Shadwell Farm, Taylor Made Stallions, Three Chimneys Farm, Unusual Heat Syndicate, Walmac Farm, and WinStar Farm.
"Caring for our horses following the end of their racing careers should be a priority to all participants in the Thoroughbred industry," said Antony Beck of Gainesway in a release. "The TAA helps to join everyone together in this endeavor to support a common cause."
As the TAA continues to gain prominence and support, more farms and individual stallion syndicates are expected to participate, the organization said in a release.
"While still in our early days, these stud farms have been instrumental in establishing a financial vehicle to further the TAA's mission," said Jimmy Bell, president of both Darley America and the TAA. "As the president of the TAA, I want to thank my colleagues for showing their support for and commitment to aftercare through these stallion pledges."
"The TAA wouldn't be where we are without them," TAA founder Jack Wolf, president of Starlight Stables, said of the participating breeding entities.
Based in Lexington, the TAA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization designed to serve as both an accrediting body for aftercare facilities that care for Thoroughbreds following the conclusion of their racing careers, and a fund-raising body to support these approved facilities. Funded initially by seed money from Breeders' Cup Ltd., The Jockey Club, and Keeneland Association, the TAA is comprised of and supported by owners, trainers, breeders, racetracks, aftercare professionals, and other industry groups. In 2013, TAA awarded $1 million to 23 accredited organizations and gave out an additional $2.4 million to 42 accredited organizations in 2014.
