TAA On-Site At The Spa Whitney Weekened

Adam Coglianese

Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance, on-site in Saratoga for a variety of events in August, highlighted by the Aug. 5 GI Whitney S., will be available at NYRA's Community Outreach Booth to share information on accredited aftercare. Branded merchandise will be available in exchange for a donation, including a limited-edition Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance “Saratoga” t-shirt sponsored by Repole Stable featuring a unique design by artist and supporter Ellen Skidmore.

The TAA will remain on-site through the Aug. 7-8 Fasig-Tipton yearling sales. For more information, visit www.nyra.com/saratoga/visit/community-booth.

“With so many events and industry participants in town for the Saratoga meet, it is a fantastic opportunity for Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance to be on-site and connect with supporters, partners, and some of our local accredited organizations,” said Jeffrey Bloom, TAA President. “We look forward to continuing to share the mission of accredited aftercare with racing fans and we value all of our partnerships and supporters that give us the platform to do so during this premiere meet.”

The TAA will have two named races on consecutive days to highlight accredited aftercare–Saturday, Aug. 5 and Sunday, Aug. 6. Following the running of each race, a presentation will be made to the winning connections including a branded blanket and swag bag.

In addition, TAA will be honored with a donation of $25,000 from James and Shari Ough. The check presentation will be made during the running of the named race Aug. 5.

TAA will also facilitate guests on Whitney day from one of the VIP experiences auctioned off earlier this year in the “Off to the Races” campaign, promoting aftercare awareness. Winners from the VIP experience will enjoy a special track tour, a tour of the Saratoga Racing Museum and Hall of Fame, and a day of racing with paddock passes and winner's circle access during the TAA race. The experience was donated by NYRA and the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame.
