Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance Release

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance will be present once again at Gulfstream Park for Florida Derby Day on Saturday, March 30, 2024. Known as “the biggest race day of the year in South Florida”, the Curlin Florida Derby is a Grade 1 Kentucky Derby prep-race. Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance has partnered with 1/ST RACING to have a variety of on-site activations during the day.

Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance will be honored with a named race on the Florida Derby Day undercard. Following the running of the race, a presentation will be made to the winning connections including a Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance branded blanket and a gift bag with branded merchandise. 1/ST RACING will promote accredited aftercare throughout the day.

A representative from Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance will be on-site to host the winners of the “Off to the Races” VIP Experience online benefit auction. 1/ST RACING generously donated the Florida Derby Day VIP Experience where the winners will enjoy premium dining, access to the paddock, and more.

Additionally, Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance is announced as the co-beneficiary for the Florida Derby Charity Golf Tournament alongside the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund. The charity golf tournament, hosted by 1/ST RACING, will be held on Monday, March 25, at the Plantation Preserve Golf Course & Club.
