Paragon Farms will sponsor the $100,000 Sir Barton S., held during GI Preakness S. weekend at Pimlico Race Course. The Sir Barton will benefit the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA).
Founded by Thoroughbred owners and breeders Brandon and Diannah Perry, Paragon Farms entered into an agreement to annually donate $100,000 to the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance as the title sponsor of the Sir Barton S. for three consecutive years beginning at this year's Preakness.
“Diannah and I are driven to make a difference, and proud to support the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance,” Brandon Perry said. “We are honored to be a part of the Preakness. We are encouraged by the TAA's commitment to raising awareness for aftercare cooperation and inspiring action, to protect the horses that have given us personally so much. Together, through lasting change, responsibility will have a long-term positive impact on the sport we love.”
“The generosity of Brandon and Diannah Perry is truly astounding,” said Funding and Events Manager, Emily (Dresen) Scandore. “The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance is incredibly grateful and excited for this newfound partnership with Paragon Farms and looks forward to putting their donation toward our 82 accredited charities helping thousands of retired Thoroughbreds.”
