Keeneland Becomes ITBF Sponsor

Keeneland | Coady

Keeneland has become a sponsor of the International Thoroughbred Breeders' Federation, an organization which serves the members of Thoroughbred breeding associations in 26 countries that produce some 80,000 foals annually.

“We are enormously grateful to Keeneland for their support and welcome them as an ITBF sponsor,” said Sarah Carmichael,  CEO of ITBF. “As a not-for-profit organization, ITBF has to look to the industry for ongoing financial assistance to facilitate the essential service that we provide to the international breeding industry. Our role is a continually expanding one, and without our sponsors we would not be able to deliver and further develop as we do.”

ITBF is dedicated to providing a worldwide platform for the voice of breeders with the goal of safeguarding the integrity of the Thoroughbred breed, and the global production of responsibly bred and reared, healthy, capable future athletes of the racetrack.

“Keeneland is pleased to become an ITBF sponsor in support of the federation's important work in the global Thoroughbred community,” Keeneland President and CEO Shannon Arvin said. “Though an international industry, breeders worldwide are interconnected by similar needs and issues. ITBF plays a critical role in helping breeders achieve their goals.”

Keeneland joins existing ITBF partners which include fellow auction houses Tattersalls, Goffs, Hokkaido Sales, New Zealand Bloodstock and Fasig-Tipton, as well as Gallagher (bloodstock insurance).
