DMTC Stables Notes
DEL MAR, Calif.—The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club has joined several Thoroughbred associations to form the California Horse Power Coalition, designed to preserve the state’s vibrant equine culture. Santa Anita Park, the Thoroughbred Owners of California (TOC), the California Retirement Management Account (CARMA), the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA) and others have joined the effort.
The coalition also consists of organizations representing backstretch workers and jockeys, animal wellness advocates, and family and fans of the horse racing. Together they hope to educate the public on the benefits of having an equine industry in California and the economic impact it has on communities.
For instance, the horse industry contributes over $8.3 million dollars to California’s economy annually and $1.7 billion in tourism dollars from participants and spectators. The equine industry generates over 77-thousand jobs throughout the state and provides homes and active lifestyles for over six thousand horses.
