The Jockey Club

Since 2009, the Jockey Club has offered owners and breeders the opportunity to contribute to Thoroughbred aftercare programs through a voluntary check-off program when registering their foals. The funds raised are distributed between TCA, the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA) and the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation (TRF).

The Jockey Club, founded in 1894 and dedicated to the improvement of Thoroughbred breeding and racing, is the breed registry for North American Thoroughbreds. In fulfillment of its mission, The Jockey Club provides support and leadership on a wide range of important industry initiatives and it serves the information and technology needs of owners, breeders, media, fans and farms, among others.
