Lexington, Ky.—The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA) announced today that it will be on-site to promote aftercare awareness at the NTRA National Horseplayers Championship (NHC) August 27-29 at Bally’s Las Vegas. Horseplayers are invited to connect with TAA representatives, learn more about accredited Thoroughbred aftercare, enter drawings for select racing experiences, take home racing memorabilia, and donate to the TAA.
“We are delighted to once again partner with the TAA to raise awareness and funds for Thoroughbred aftercare at this year’s NHC. Many horseplayers competing at the national championship look forward to supporting these equine athletes once their racing careers are concluded,” said NTRA Chief Operating Officer Keith Chamblin.
“Providing a platform for the TAA during an event as prestigious as the NHC impresses upon every participating horseplayer and racetrack the legitimacy of the TAA as the gold standard in Thoroughbred aftercare,” said TAA Funding and Events Manager Emily Dresen. “We’re so grateful to have the support of NTRA and wish all of the players good luck in Las Vegas.”
Of the seven #NHC2021 eligible racetracks Del Mar, Ellis Park, Golden Gate Fields, Gulfstream Park, and Saratoga Race Course are proud supporters of the TAA.
