Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA) supporter Tampa Bay Downs will promote aftercare awareness on the undercard of the final day of the Oldsmar, Florida-based race meet. Taking place Sunday, May 2, Race 6 will benefit the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance. Following the running of the race, a check presentation will be made to the TAA and a TAA blanket and swag bag will go to the winning connections.
In Tampa Bay Downs’ Race 6 presented by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance, ten maiden 3-year-olds are set to go 5 furlongs on the turf at 3:08 PM.
“Tampa Bay Downs is pleased to extend its support of the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance and its ongoing efforts to find new homes and second careers for retired racehorses,” said Margo Flynn, the track’s Vice President of Marketing & Publicity.
“The TAA is thrilled to be represented during the finale of Tampa Bay Down’s race meet,” said TAA Marketing and Communications Manager Alexandra Kokka. “We’re so grateful to have the support of Tampa Bay Downs and only wish we could be there in person to thank them for their donation.”
