TAA Grants $3.42 million to Accredited Organizations
The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance announced that $3,420,000 will be awarded as grants to 74 Thoroughbred aftercare organizations that currently hold TAA accreditation.
Since inception in 2012, the TAA has now awarded more than $17.2 million in grants
to accredited Thoroughbred aftercare organizations.
“The TAA is pleased
to be able to award more than $3 million this year, especially with a growing list of accredited organizations,” TAA President Mike Meuser said.
“We know these funds will help our accredited organizations retrain, rehome, and retire more Thoroughbreds. However, there is still work to be done and we urge
racing industry stakeholders to continue to invest
in Thoroughbred aftercare for the long- term survival of our sport.”
Earmarked speci cally for equine care, TAA grants have helped accredited organizations assist more than 10,300 Thoroughbreds since 2012.
TAA-accredited organizations undergo a thorough application and inspection
process prior to accreditation being awarded to ensure they meet the TAA’s Code of Standards, which covers  ve key areas: operations, education, horse health care management, facility standards and services, and adoption policies and protocols. Facility inspections
are conducted
at all facilities housing Thoroughbreds for each organization. Ongoing updates and re-inspections are required of all organizations as a condition of TAA accreditation.
The TAA is supported by members from every aspect of the Thoroughbred industry, including owners, breeders, trainers, stallion farms, racetracks, sales companies, horsemen’s groups, foundations, veterinarians, horseplayers, racing fans, wagering technology companies, and many others.
