Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance to Promote Aftercare on Santa Anita Derby Day

Santa Anita | Benoit

The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance has partnered with 1/ST to promote accredited aftercare awareness on GI Santa Anita Derby day Apr. 8.

The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance will be recognized with a named race on the Santa Anita Derby Day undercard. Following the running of the race, a presentation will be made to the winning connections, including a branded blanket and swag bag. There will also be an opportunity for jockeys to pledge their jocks mount fee throughout the day to the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.

Representatives from the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance will be on-site as a VIP concierge for one of the VIP experiences that was auctioned off earlier this year in the “Off to the Races” campaign to promote aftercare awareness. This VIP experience was donated by 1/ST.

“Santa Anita Park is pleased to welcome the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance back for Santa Anita Derby Day. At 1/ST, we are committed to furthering the impact of accredited aftercare in the industry and supporting this important work of the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance,” said Aidan Butler, Chief Executive Officer, 1/ST RACING & GAMING and Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance Board of Directors Member.

“The support of 1/ST is invaluable at these premier events,” said Stacie Clark-Rogers, Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance Operations Consultant. “Having onsite presence is an excellent way to continue the conversation about aftercare. We are looking forward to being at the Santa Anita Derby.”
