Off To The Races at BreyerFest 2018

Brass Hat greets fans

With the 2018 BreyerFest theme as “Off To The Races,” the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance had a presence at the event as thousands of racing fans and equine enthusiasts descended upon the Kentucky Horse Park July 13-15.

Here are a few scenes from the weekend captured by TAA inspections coordinator Suzie Picou-Oldham.
