TCA is a charitable organization that provides grants to non-profit organizations that work toward improving the lives of Thoroughbred racehorses and the people who care for them. TCA offers the Thoroughbred industry and its supporters a way to give to one organization while helping many. Our mission is to provide a better life for Thoroughbreds, both during and after their racing careers, by supporting qualified repurposing and retirement organizations and by helping the people who care for them.
Held each January, TCA’s largest fundraiser is a Stallion Season Auction. The event consists of an online and a live auction of select seasons and other items. Most seasons sell during the online auction however several select seasons, as well as other items such as trips and tickets to sporting events, are sold during a live auction.
Online Season Auction: Wednesday, January 2, 9 a.m. – Friday, January 4, 3 p.m. (EST)
Telephone bidding available Friday, January 4, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. (EST)
