Following the meeting's conclusion, the board meeting turned to celebration with co-board member Gretchen Jackson, the owner of Barbaro, winner of the 2006 Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I).
"The board members of TCA are extremely grateful to the Thoroughbred farms that donated to our annual stallion season auction, enabling us to fulfill our mission of providing a better life for Thoroughbreds, both during and after their racing careers, and by helping the people who work with them," executive director Liz Harris said. The Stallion Season Auction will be held December 1 at Keeneland Entertainment Center in Lexington. TCA is an affiliate of Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association.
