Officials at the National Turf Writers and Broadcasters (NTWAB), which consists of more than 180 professional racing journalists, announced Wednesday a pledge of $5,000 to Legacy Equine Academy, a Lexington-based program that gives racially diverse middle and high school students the opportunity to learn horsemanship through exposure to farms and the racing industry.

“The NTWAB officers and board voted unanimously in the spring and gained the support of its general membership at our meeting prior to the Kentucky Derby to make a significant, one-time donation to a group that benefits both the industry and the community,” said Tom Law, NTWAB President and Managing Editor of ST Publishing Inc.

In non-pandemic years, the NTWAB hosts an annual awards dinner the week prior to the Breeders' Cup and makes donations to charities chosen by its award winners. The NTWAB cancelled what would have been the 61st annual awards dinner due to COVID-19, but plans to resume its annual dinner tradition in 2021.
