TCA has helped our equine adoption program www.secondstride.org through generously granting us funds to help even more race horses in need in our community. They are good stewards to the funds given them. The review process they put in place both pre and post grant funding is top notch and very thorough.

The TCA annually does a fantastic job raising much-needed funds for numerous thoroughbred industry related causes. As the founder and lead instructor of the North American Racing Academy (NARA), I know first-hand how valuable the efforts of the TCA truly are. NARA has received grants from TCA for three consecutive years and we are extremely grateful for their support. Please help the TCA continue the terrific work they do. Chris McCarron

Thoroughbred Charities of America does so many wonderful things for so many non-profits...therapeutic riding programs, education and backstretch programs, research, and rescue and rehabilitation. We have watched TCA grow over the years and set the standards and raise the bar for improving the lives of Thoroughbred racehorses, ex-racehorses and the people who care for them. They have the love of the Thoroughbred and the people who work with them at the forefront of their charitable platform. As a grant recipient, I can say that they have helped Bright Futures Farm greatly improve the lives of many of the elder, retired Thoroughbreds in our sanctuary as well as several that needed special care before they could be considered adoptable. "TCA" is a fantastic organization that works very hard for Thoroughbred horses, backstretch employees and rescue and rehabilitation programs such as ours. Without TCA, we couldn't do what we do for Thoroughbreds.
