Thoroughbred Charities of America Breaks Record with 17th Annual Charity

The 17th Annual Thoroughbred Charities of America ("TCA") Stallion Season

and Art Auction, which began with a Season Telephone Auction and concluded

with a live auction at the Keeneland Entertainment Center on December 1, was

a record-breaking event. Fasig Tipton auctioneers conducted the auction.

"Since many seasons are still being sold, the results are not yet final. The

sales-to-date, however, are well in excess of $2,000,000, representing an

increase of more than 30% over last year" said Liz Harris, Executive

Director of TCA.

A star-studded crowd of 500 guests attended the event and the bidding was

spirited. A season to Bernardini was purchased by James B. Keogh, as agent,

for $280,000 and a no guarantee season to Unbridled's Song was purchased by

Fred Hertrich for $155,000. The Bernardini season was donated by Darley and

the Unbridled's Song season was donated by Taylor Made Farm and the

syndicate. An Andre Pater original artwork was purchased by Kitty Taylor for

$30,000 and the successful bidder at $10,000 for the Triple Crown Package

was Donna Jones.

The event honored the Barbaro Team including Roy and Gretchen Jackson and

the New Bolton Vet Team headed by Dr. Dean Richardson, head of surgery at

The George D. Widener Hospital for Large Animals at Univ. of Pennsylvania's

New Bolton Center. They were awarded the TCA 2006 Distinguished Service

Award with Joan Hendricks, V.M.D., Ph.D., The Gilbert S. Kahn Dean of

Veterinary Medicine at Penn Veterinary Medicine, accepting the award on

behalf of Dr. Richardson.

Herb Moelis, President and Founder of TCA stated that "most interesting and

gratifying to me was that this was the first time Keeneland and Fasig Tipton

have worked together on a horse-related event. This is truly a watershed

event in our industry. Hopefully, this type of cooperation will carry over

to other parts of our industry".
