Pimlico Hosts Canter For a Cause


Riders in Pimlico's winner's circle after participating in Canter For a Cause | 1/ST

Over 260 riders and their mounts from throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and farther afield cantered, walked and trotted across Pimlico Race Course Sunday, to raise awareness and money for the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA) as part of Canter for a Cause. The event, sponsored by the Maryland Jockey Club, saw registered riders go out in one of four groups between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to take their horse around Pimlico, as well as walk through the starting gate and get their picture taken in the winner's circle.

“The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance is honored to be the charity of choice for Canter for a Cause once again,” said Stacie Clark Rogers, operations consultant for TAA. “It's always so great to see so many people eager to support accredited Thoroughbred aftercare and have some fun while doing it. Thank you to 1/ST for hosting the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance and for all that they do for our horses.”
