The Indiana Thoroughbred Alliance (ITA)–a newly founded group dedicated to helping educate, inspire and support those interested in the Indiana horse racing industry–will present “Pedigree Research and Purposeful Pedigrees,” with guest speaker Robert Keck, bloodstock consultant at Kentucky's Crestwood Farm, on Saturday, Dec. 5.
The event, open to anyone interested in breeding Thoroughbreds, is the first in a series of activities the ITA will host in the coming months, all aimed at helping to educate breeders and those looking to get into breeding.
Susan Burger, a longtime broodmare manager and now owner of Indiana's Ledgerwood Farm, is the co-vice president of the ITA, and organizer of the seminar.
“The ITA wanted to open up the avenue of continuing education for the breeders of Indiana,” Burger said. “We want to help breeders, and those interested in getting into breeding, to learn what they need to look for when it comes to booking a stallion to their mare, or even purchasing a broodmare.”
The seminar will be held at the Painted Hills Clubhouse in Martinsville, Indiana, starting at 1 p.m. ET. Registration is free and refreshments will be provided.
