Thoroughbred Charities of America (TCA) announced they will hold its Stallion Season Auction Dec. 1, and for the first time, the event will take place at Keeneland Entertainment Center.
The location of the event for the past 16 years was CandyLand Farm, owned by TCA founders Herb and Ellen Moelis. With almost 400 yearly attendees, last year's auction grossed close to $2 million.
The format this year will be the same, with a telephone auction preceding the event, Nov. 27-29. Hundreds of silent auction items will be featured at the sit-down dinner Dec. 1, with a live auction by Fasig-Tipton auctioneers of approximately 20-select seasons and art to follow.
All proceeds will benefit national Thoroughbred non-profits in the fields of rescue/retraining, backstretch/jockey, research, educational scholarships, and therapeutic riding centers. 93 cents of every dollar donated is granted directly to the charities, with over $12 million granted out to date.
TCA is an affiliate of Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association. For more information go to www.ThoroughbredCharities.org or call Liz Harris at 859-312-5531.
