LEXINGTON, Ky.— The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA) will join FanDuel TV in the Breeders’ Cup World Championships winner’s circle to present the premiere race on Future Stars Friday— the FanDuel Breeders’ Cup Juvenile presented by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (GI).
As part of FanDuel’s commitment to support accredited Thoroughbred aftercare, the sports-wagering digital cable and satellite television network will present a check to the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance during Future Stars Friday. FanDuel TV, formerly TVG, has honored the TAA at the Breeders’ Cup since 2020. To date, the company has provided more than $200,000 in charitable contributions to the TAA and California Retirement Management Account (CARMA).
FanDuel TV strives to highlight the importance of responsible aftercare for retired racehorses during its programming. The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance regularly receives air time during FanDuel TV’s premiere race day programming, and the Breeders’ Cup World Championships is no exception. FanDuel TV will provide extensive coverage of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships from Keeneland on November 4-5.
“Our company is proud to continue its support for Thoroughbred aftercare and second careers and to highlight all the good work the racing industry is doing to care for its equine athletes before, during, and after their careers on the track,” said Andrew Moore, General Manager of Racing for FanDuel Group.
“FanDuel’s commitment to continue including the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance on one of the biggest days of racing is a huge win for not only the TAA, but the aftercare movement as a whole,” said TAA President, Jeffrey Bloom. “Thanks to the TAA and its vast network of accredited aftercare charities we can rest easy knowing our horses are in good hands, but this solution only works if we provide the funding necessary to sustain the demand created by the racing industry. FanDuel continues to set themselves apart as a major annual donor for the TAA and for that we are incredibly grateful.”
