Industry groups create Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance

Thoroughbred Racehorse

A broad-based group of Thoroughbred industry stakeholders announced today the establishment of the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA)—an organization designed to serve as both the accrediting body for aftercare facilities that care for Thoroughbreds following the conclusion of their racing careers and a fundraising 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 owners, trainers, breeders, racetracks, jockeys, aftercare professionals and other industry groups.

“It is our responsibility as owners, tracks, breeders, trainers, jockeys, bloodstock agents, and anyone who has a stake in the game to take responsibility for the aftercare of these great animals who are the keystone of our sport,” said TAA board President and Thoroughbred owner Jack Wolf. “Securing support and funding from Breeders’ Cup, The Jockey Club, Keeneland and so many other great organizations speaks to the credibility and importance of our effort and is so greatly appreciated.”

  1. When the racing commission no longer sanctions the racing of two-year-old TBs , I will then believe the entire racing industry has the best interest of these horses at heart.

  2. They can start by taking Star Plus off the track, making a sizable donation to Old Friends and sending him there where they will take excellent care of him, like Michael Blowen offered. God bless Michael Blowen and everyone at Old Friends.
