“I feel aftercare is one of the most important issues facing our industry.  The work TAA is doing is invaluable to the effort.  By painstakingly vetting the aftercare organizations they accredit, TAA takes the guesswork out of deciding where contributions are most effectively spent.

Whatever their level of ability on the track, these horses give us everything they have every time they run.  We all share a responsibility and have a role to play in making sure they are cared for long after they racing behind.  We owe them that.”
