LEXINGTON, Ky.— As part of the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA)’s month-long Holiday Giving Campaign, Sol Kumin has pledged to match all donations up to $5,000 made to the TAA on Dec. 14, 2022. No stranger to the winner’s circle, Kumin’s ventures into racehorse ownership have seen the likes of Justify, Authentic, Monomoy Girl, Exaggerator, Whitmore, and Lady Eli, among others. In addition to Kumin’s success on the racetrack, the American business leader and philanthropist has been a supporter of the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance since 2017.
“I believe as owners we have an obligation to make sure that these horses have a safe place to land when the crowds are gone and their racing days are over,” said Sol Kumin, Madaket Stables. “The TAA works tirelessly to not only ensure that these safe places exist, but that they also get the funding necessary to move on to their second careers.”
“We are so happy to have Sol’s support and match for the day,” said TAA Funding and Events Manager, Emily Dresen. “Madaket Stables is a great example of responsible ownership that doesn’t end at the track.”
TAA’s Holiday Giving Campaign commenced November 29th and is scheduled to conclude New Year’s Eve. Those wishing to support the TAA, its 81 accredited organizations, and thousands of retired Thoroughbreds can donate through the TAA’s website or text DONATE to 56651. During the Holiday Giving Campaign, TAA is also offering donors the benefit of sending digital holiday cards to colleagues, friends, and loved ones.
Throughout the end of the year, the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance will continue to host special one-day only donation matches with some of horse racing’s biggest names. For more chances to double your donation, watch the TAA’s social media, website, and industry advertisements for the next Holiday Giving match day announcement.
