Our mission:

To provide a better life for Thoroughbreds, both during and after their racing careers by supporting rescue, retirement and research and by helping the people who work with them.

TCA is a charitable organization that provides grants to non-profit organizations that work toward improving the lives of Thoroughbred racehorses and the people who work with them. TCA offers the Thoroughbred industry and its supporters a way to give to one organization while helping many.

TCA distributes grants to four types of organizations:

  • Thoroughbred rescue, rehabilitation, retraining, adoption and retirement
  • Backstretch and farm employee programs
  • Therapeutic riding programs that utilize Thoroughbreds
  • Equine research
