TCA Establishes Racehorse Retraining and Retirement Fund

Dec. 1, 2008, Midway, KY- Thoroughbred Charities of America (“TCA”) will officially launch its newly established Racehorse Retraining and Retirement Fund (“RRRF”) on December 5th at the TCA Stallion Season auction. This fund will help provide support for the programs which address the growing problem of the fate of the racehorse once its racing career has ended. The auction will be held at the Keeneland Entertainment Center.

Herb Moelis, president of TCA stated that “the initiative taken by the Jockey Club in instituting a new Foal Registration check off enables TCA to establish our RRRF program. We now intend to solicit support for this program from all participants in the Thoroughbred industry including racetracks, race owners, sales companies, etc.”

“With the support of most stallion farms who donate seasons for our auction, TCA has distributed more than $15,000,000 in annual grants including those to equine adoption centers for the retired racehorse. The Jockey Club initiative, together with support from racing’s other sectors, will help combat the problem of the unwanted horse before it tarnishes our industry” commented Liz Harris, executive director of TCA.

A telephone auction of seasons will be conducted today through December 3, 2008. For information or to register for this, please call Ellen Moelis (302-376-6289).

Donations for the RRRF may be sent to TCA, PO Box 3856, Midway, KY 40347. For information about attending the December 5 auction contact Liz Harris at 859-312-5531.
