The TAA was honored to be the Official Aftercare Partner for the 2018 Breeders’ Cup World Championships Nov. 2-3 at Churchill Downs.

In addition to being a partner and a beneficiary of Breeders’ Cup Charities, the TAA was recognized with the Marathon Stakes presented by TAA (G2) on Breeders’ Cup Friday. The TAA team gave away a TAA-branded blanket to Centennial Farm’s Rocketry, who won the 1 3/4-mile test by three-quarters of a length. The Hard Spun colt is trained by Jimmy Jerkens and was ridden to victory by jockey Joel Rosario.
