LEXINGTON, KY — Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance announces the dates for the second annual Holiday Giving Campaign. Set to commence on Giving Tuesday, November 28, 2023, the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance Holiday Giving Campaign will extend through December 31, 2023. This campaign is designed to increase awareness for accredited Thoroughbred aftercare and to raise funds for the accredited organizations responsible for ensuring a quality life for equine athletes after their racing careers. This year’s campaign is set to follow the success of last year’s inaugural campaign which raised over $180,000 for accredited aftercare.
“Our Thoroughbred horses provide us with so much, and each donation to the campaign goes a long way in supporting a network of 86 accredited organizations. Our organizations do an amazing job of taking care of the retired racehorses, so as we prepare for the holiday season, I hope that we can all simplify our gift giving and donate to Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance,” said Jeffrey Bloom, Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance President.
Throughout the campaign, Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance will announce new daily match sponsors with some of the most prominent names in horseracing. Each sponsor will match all donations up to a specified amount for his or her day. Match sponsors will be announced daily in various industry publications, the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance website, social media, and email.

“We all have our preferred charities to support. We choose to support Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance because it does the critical work in providing grants to the best of the best aftercare facilities,” said Craig Bandoroff, President of Denali Stud and Vice President of Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance, “These horses deserve and need our support. It’s our obligation not our option.”
Individuals interested in participating in the Holiday Giving Campaign to support accredited Thoroughbred aftercare efforts can visit Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance’s website, beginning on November 28, to contribute a generous donation and send digital holiday cards to colleagues, friends, and loved ones.
“Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance donations play a vital role in easing the financial burdens on our accredited organizations, ensuring they have the necessary support to care for our Thoroughbreds,” explained Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance Funding and Events Director, Emily Dresen. “We encourage you to make a donation to the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance during our holiday giving campaign, where a single gift can make a meaningful difference in the lives of thousands of off-the-track Thoroughbreds.”
