Breeders' Cup selects Thoroughbred Charities of America as Beneficiary

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Breeders’ Cup announced today it has selected Thoroughbred Charities of America, (“TCA”), as a beneficiary of the 2009 Breeders’ Cup World Championships to be held November 6-7 at Santa Anita Park located in Arcadia, California.

Breeders’ Cup Charities was formed in 2008 to partner with and raise funds and awareness for broad-based charitable organizations. The Breeders’ Cup will assist TCA in its fundraising efforts through public service announcements, online and trackside presence, and fan directed contributions to increase the awareness of the organization’s initiatives.

“Over the years, the TCA has been a vital and generous supporter of important Thoroughbred causes that effect our industry in so many positive ways,” said Greg Avioli, Breeders’ Cup President and CEO. “We are honored to extend our relationship with TCA and the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association for this year’s World Championships.”

TCA was formed in 1990 to raise funds for those charities in the Thoroughbred industry which provide a better life for Thoroughbreds both during and after their racing careers by supporting retirement, rescue, research and by helping the people who work with them. TCA is now the charitable arm of the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association, (TOBA).

TOBA, based in Lexington, Ky., was formed in 1961 and is a national trade organization of leading Thoroughbred horse breeders and owners. TOBA’s mission is to “improve the economics, integrity and pleasure of the sport on behalf of Thoroughbred owners and breeders.” Projects managed by TOBA include the American Graded Stakes Committee, The Racing Game, Sales Integrity Program and Claiming Crown. TOBA is the owner of The Blood-Horse Inc., and is represented on the Board of Directors of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association as a founding member.

Earlier this month, the Breeders’ Cup announced that The V Foundation for Cancer Research would be the primary non-profit beneficiary of this year’s World Championships.
