Thoroughbred Charities of America announced June 9 that Dan Rosenberg, owner of Rosenberg Thoroughbred Consulting in Midway, Ky. has been elected president of the TCA effective July 1, 2010.
Rosenberg replaces Herb Moelis, the co-founder of TCA. Moelis is stepping down as president but will remain on the board of directors. The election occurred during the annual TCA board meeting held last month in Middletown, Del. Joining Rosenberg among the new slate of officers is Jack Wolf, vice-president; Ellen Moelis, treasurer; and Jim Orsini, secretary.
“Herb and Ellen Moelis saw the need for taking care of retired racehorses before anyone was even talking about it,” Rosenberg said in a release. “Through their commitment and hard work they have contributed to the welfare of countless horses in the past and in the future, and they have brought the issue of caring for retired Thoroughbreds to the forefront. I look forward to continuing in Herb's footsteps and to furthering the cause that he has championed.”
TCA has distributed more than $17 million to more than 200 accredited charities that work to fulfill TCA’s mission.
“The decision to retire as president after 20 years was not an easy one to make,” said Moelis. “However, when you have a person with Dan Rosenberg's credentials as your successor it makes the decision much less difficult. I feel confident Dan will carry on the mission of Thoroughbred Charities of America and in fact bring TCA to the next level.”
TCA formally affiliated with the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association in 2008 and is now the charitable arm of the organization.
TCA’s primary fundraiser is its annual Stallion Season Auction held each December in Lexington. Donations to TCA are always accepted. To make a donation visit www.thoroughbredcharities.org.
