Fasig-Tipton has added a no-guarantee season to leading sire MEDAGLIA D’ORO to its upcoming Kentucky Winter Mixed Sale. The season will be offered after hip 480, just before the beginning of the supplemental catalogue, during the sale’s second session this Tuesday, February 9.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the season will be donated to charities that include the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.
“We’re thrilled that part of the proceeds of this Medaglia d’Oro season will be shared with charitable organizations such as the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. This season is an exciting addition to this year’s sale, especially after the tremendous day Medaglia d’Oro had on Saturday with two brilliant Grade 1 winners in SONGBIRD and MSHAWISH.
The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance is a non-profit organization that accredits, inspects and awards grants to approved aftercare organizations to retire, retrain, and rehome Thoroughbreds using industry-wide funding. Currently the TAA provides grants to over 50 accredited Thoroughbred aftercare organizations supporting over 180 facilities across the United States and Canada. These accredited organizations have gone through a rigorous accreditation process which included inspections of all facilities housing their horses.
