"We have an outstanding roster of stallions in the auction this year", said Erin Crady, executive director of TCA, said in a news release. "We greatly appreciate the generosity of our season donors; their generosity enables TCA to raise funds for distribution to many Thoroughbred charities."
In addition to the stallion seasons, live auction items will include an Andre Pater oil painting, a sports package featuring Kentucky vs. Louisville basketball tickets, an Ez-Go 2 + 2 Golf Cart, a Triple Crown Package, and a trip to Italy.
