The $50,000 Auburn Stakes for 3 year old colts and geldings will be the spotlight race of the day. $250 per starter will be donated to the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.
Thoroughbreds are versatile athletes that thrive on competition, even after their racing days are over. Thoroughbreds have found success in a variety of equine disciplines, including eventing, dressage, barrel racing, and jumping. They also make great lead ponies, therapy horses, and companions.
The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance is a nonprofit that accredits, inspects, and awards grants to approved aftercare organizations to retrain, rehome, and retire Thoroughbreds using industry-wide funding.
As the accrediting body for aftercare, the TAA has awarded accreditation to 64 organizations with approximately 170 facilities in North America. Since inception in 2012, the TAA has granted $10.8 million to accredited organizations.
The TAA’s Standard of Accreditation and grant process provide donors with confidence that their contributions are allocated in the most effective manner. Accreditation status is determined after a complete review of five areas of an organization: operations; education; horse health care management; facility standards and services; and adoption policies and protocols.
