The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance has partnered with Centennial Farms to present the Best Turned Out Horse Awards during the Pegasus World Cup Invitational card Jan. 26, 2019 at Gulfstream Park.
Centennial Farms, an ownership group with more than 30 years experience operating elite Thoroughbred racing partnerships, will sponsor the cash prize and gift bag to be given to the winning groom of the Best Turned Out Horse for six races on the card.
Guest judges will select the horse in each race that is deemed to be the best presented, and that horse’s groom will receive a gift bag and cash prize. The TAA and Centennial Farms will promote the winners on their social media platforms, and the winning groom will be mentioned on the live simulcast feed.
“We are honored to partner with and support the great work of the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance, an outstanding leader in aftercare for our industry,” said Don Little, President of Centennial Farms. “Everyone at Centennial feels very strongly about the lifelong commitment to our horses and ensuring they have a secure home when their racing days are over. As fans watch some of the world’s best horses compete on the Pegasus World Cup Invitational card, we are thrilled to help shine a well-deserved spotlight on the grooms who work so hard each day to help these magnificent athletes reach their potential.”
The TAA is an official charity of the Pegasus World Cup Invitational.
