The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance will be on-site at Pimlico Race Course during Preakness week. The 148th Preakness S. will take place Saturday, May 20.
The TAA will kick off the week with America's Best Racing's Pre-Preakness Party. The eighth annual Pre-Preakness Party will be held Wednesday, May 17, at the Mt. Washington Tavern in Baltimore, Maryland. The evening will consist of networking, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, an entertaining handicapping challenge with guest analysts, and a silent auction. All proceeds of the party and auction will benefit the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance. Tickets are still available online at:
On Friday, May 19, TAA will be recognized with a named race on the undercard of Black-Eyed Susan Day. On Saturday, May 20, TAA will present the Sir Barton S. Sponsored by Brandon and Diannah Perry, who entered into an agreement to annually donate $100,000 to the TAA as the title sponsor for three consecutive years beginning with the Preakness 147.
On both Black-Eyed Susan and Preakness Day, the TAA will host the Best Turned Out Awards in the winner's circle for each race.
Throughout the week, TAA will facilitate winning guests from one of the VIP experiences auctioned off earlier this year in the “Off to the Races” campaign. In addition to the Pre-Preakness Party and a weekend of racing, this experience also includes a sunrise tour, the Alibi Breakfast, and access to join the simulcast for a race on the Black-Eyed Susan undercard. Guests will also join the winner's circle for the Sir Barton on Preakness Day. This experience celebrating the second leg of the Triple Crown was donated by 1/ST RACING and America's Best Racing.
