The California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA), which hosts a pair of Thoroughbred sales annually, will participate in the NTRA Legislative Action Campaign's 1/4% Checkoff Program, which supports the NTRA's federal lobbying efforts.

Beginning with the Aug. 10 Northern California Sale at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, buyers and consignors/sellers at may elect to have 0.25% of the sale price of each horse donated to the Legislative Action Campaign. This percentage equals $2.50 for every $1,000 in sale price. The CTBA joins Keeneland, Fasig-Tipton, Ocala Breeders' Sales Company and the Washington Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association as Thoroughbred sales companies that participate in the Campaign's fundraising efforts.

“The CTBA recognizes the importance of having the NTRA's skilled and consistent presence in Washington, D.C., on federal legislative matters,” said CTBA President Doug Burge. “We are glad to be able to help support the NTRA by offering our buyers and sellers the opportunity to contribute to the voluntary 1/4% Check-off Program.”

“We are pleased and grateful to have the CTBA participate in our Legislative Action Campaign's 1/4¼% Check-off Program,” said NTRA President and Chief Executive Officer Alex Waldrop. “CTBA membership, president Doug Burge and his team and the CTBA board of directors are long-time supporters of the NTRA's programs and this enhances the relationship with our Western region constituents.”
