Officials with the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association and Keeneland were to hit the road to Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 30 to attempt to cultivate Thoroughbred owners.
The two associations are partners in The Greatest Game, an owner-recruitment initiative. They rented a bus for the about three-hour ride to Nashville, where 50 to 70 people have expressed a desire for knowledge about horse ownership.
A similar event was held earlier this year in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area. TOBA president Dan Metzger indicated Nashville wasn't selected at random.
"Nashville has a pretty good track record of people going to Keeneland (during live race meets)," Metzger said.
