Partners of TCA

The New York Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association is committed to representing the interests of owners and trainers at the New York Racing Association tracks. In 2005, NYTHA launched the Ferdinand Fee, a voluntary $2 starting fee for owners and horsemen. All of the money raised by the Ferdinand Fee will be distributed to horse rescue and retraining programs around the country through TCA.

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.

The Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association (TOBA) represents owners and breeders at all levels who want to improve the environment for Thoroughbred ownership and elevate the sport. Members of TOBA can contribute to TCA when they renew their annual TOBA memberships. Collectively, since 2017, TOBA members have contributed nearly $50,000 to TCA.
