LEXINGTON, Ky. – Renowned equine artist Robert Clark will be offering limited run prints of a one-of-a-kind painting featuring American Pharoah and Justify with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Thoroughbred Charities of America (TCA).
The painting was offered at the recent TCA Stallion Season Live Auction and Celebration and sold for $18,000 with all proceeds benefiting TCA. The prints are 16” x 20”, numbered, and signed by the artist.
“We are deeply appreciative of Bob’s ongoing support of TCA,” said Erin Halliwell executive director of TCA. “The original artwork was highly sought after at our live auction, and we are thrilled that prints of this beautiful piece will be offered and benefit TCA. The funds raised will be granted to our approved charities working to provide Thoroughbred aftercare as well as health and human services for backstretch and farm workers.”
“I have watched the various fundraising efforts of Thoroughbred Charities of America for many years,” said Robert Clark. “I have observed the wide array of organizations across the country supported by TCA including those that help horses and the people caring for them and I appreciate the benefit TCA has provided to the industry. It is an honor to team with TCA and contribute to their efforts in the past, the present, and the future.”
The prints are available for purchase at robertclark.us or at the artist’s gallery in Paris, Kentucky. Appointments to visit the gallery may be made by contacting email@example.com.

During the last three decades, TCA has granted over $26 million to more than 200 charities that successfully meet the criteria set forth in its annual grant application.

TCA is the charitable arm of the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association (TOBA).
