LEXINGTON, Ky.— Centennial Farms will sponsor the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance Best Turned Out Horse Awards during the Pegasus World Cup card Jan. 28, 2023 at Gulfstream Park. 2023 marks Centennial’s fifth consecutive year sponsoring the awards.
Centennial Farms, an ownership group with more than 30 years of experience operating elite Thoroughbred racing partnerships, will sponsor the cash prizes and gift bags to be given to the winning grooms of the Best Turned Out Horses for the 13-race card.
“Centennial is proud to once again be sponsors and partners with the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance in presenting the Best Turned Out Horse Awards,” said Don Little, President of Centennial Farms. “Recognizing the hard working, behind the scenes people that care for these magnificent horses unconditionally is invaluable to our sport. We look forward to an incredible day of racing and seeing all the great horses that will be turned out on Pegasus Day.”
TAA and Centennial Farms representatives will select the horse in each race that is deemed to be the best presented, and that horse’s groom will receive a gift bag and cash prize. The TAA and Centennial Farms will promote the winners on their social media platforms and the winning grooms will be named on Gulfstream Park’s live simulcast feed.
“Our industry would be nothing without the dedicated men and women who day in and day out display unwavering devotion in caring for our equine athletes,” said TAA Funding and Events Manager, Emily Dresen. “We are so appreciative of our friends Don Little and Centennial Farms for continuing to join the TAA in presenting the Best Turned Out Horse Awards at the Pegasus World Cup.”
