Lexington, Ky.— The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA) will once again have a presence on the undercard of Jeff Ruby Steaks Day at Turfway Park. Race 6 presented by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance goes off at 3:13 pm EST this Saturday, April 2, 2022. A presentation of a TAA blanket and swag bag will be made to the winning connections following the running of the race. TAA supporter Turfway Park will promote aftercare awareness throughout the race day.
