The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA) had a successful week in Maryland during Preakness celebrations with several on-site events, the organization said in a release Wednesday.

With over 160 in attendance, the America's Best Racing Pre-Preakness Party to benefit the TAA kicked off the week at Mt. Washington Tavern. A total of $25,000 was raised from a silent auction, ticket sales and donations.

“It was an absolute honor to once again partner with the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance on what has turned into a must-attend event on the racing calendar every year,” said Dan Tordjman, Manager, Business Development/Sponsorships, America's Best Racing. “We want to thank everyone who supported Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance at the party and via the online auction. We look forward to seeing this event grow next year and beyond.”

On Saturday, May 20, the TAA presented the Sir Barton S. sponsored by Brandon and Diannah Perry to Benefit the TAA. The Perrys entered into an agreement to annually donate $100,000 to the TAA as the title sponsor for three consecutive years.

“Diannah and I are privileged to be able to advance the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance's mission, with our sponsorship of the Sir Barton S.,” said Brandon and Diannah Perry, Paragon Farms. “We are honored to be able to champion the rehabilitation, retraining, and rehoming of these amazing Thoroughbreds that give all of us so much joy. To see the horses that give everything to their owners, trainers, grooms, and fans be able to enjoy life after the race track is truly rewarding.”

On both Black-Eyed Susan and Preakness Day, the TAA hosted the Best Turned Out Awards in the Pimlico winner's circle for each race sponsored by Beyond the Wire and Fidelity First.
