Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance to recognize contributing stallion farms


The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance Foundation will acknowledge the stallion farms that have agreed to contribute to the foundation with a luncheon Monday, the foundation announced Wednesday.

The luncheon will honor 22 farms that have agreed to donate one-quarter of one season from all or some of the stallions at their facilities each year. The farms are Adena Springs, Airdrie Stud, Charles Fipke Farms, Castleton Lyons, Claiborne Farm, Darby Dan Farm, Darley Stud, Gainesway Farm, Hill ‘n’ Dale, Lane’s End, McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds, Millennium Thoroughbreds, Ocala Stud, Pin Oak Stud, Ramsey Farm, Sequel Stallions, Shadwell Farm, Taylor Made Stallions, Unusual Heat Syndicate, Walmac Stud, War Horse Place, and WinStar Farm.

The luncheon also will recognize the organizations that provided seed money to launch the TAA in 2011: The Jockey Club, Keeneland Association, and Breeders’ Cup.

The TAA, which accredits retirement organizations and serves as a clearinghouse for donations to fund retirement efforts, distributed its first round of donations at the end of 2013, providing $1 million in total to 23 accredited aftercare organizations.
