LEXINGTON, KY. — Thoroughbred Charities of America (TCA) announced today that Dan Rosenberg, owner of Rosenberg Thoroughbred Consulting in Midway, Ky. has been elected president of Thoroughbred Charities of America (TCA) effective July 1, 2010. Rosenberg replaces Herb Moelis, the co-founder of TCA. Moelis is stepping down as president but will remain on the Board of Directors.
The elections occurred during the annual TCA Board Meeting held last month in Middletown, Del. Joining Rosenberg among the new slate of officers is Jack Wolf, vice-president; Ellen Moelis, treasurer; and Jim Orsini, secretary.
“Herb and Ellen Moelis saw the need for taking care of retired racehorses before anyone was even talking about it,” said Rosenberg. “Through their commitment and hard work they have contributed to the welfare of countless horses in the past and in the future, and they have brought the issue of caring for retired Thoroughbreds to the forefront. I look forward to continuing in Herb’s footsteps and to furthering the cause that he has championed.”
“TCA has distributed more than $17 million to over 200 accredited charities that work to fulfill TCA’s mission of providing a better life for Thoroughbreds, both during and after their racing careers by supporting retirement, rescue and research and by helping the people who work with them.
“The decision to retire as president after 20 years was not an easy one to make,” said Moelis. “However, when you have a person with Dan Rosenberg’s credentials as your successor it makes the decision much less difficult. I feel very confident that Dan will carry on the mission of Thoroughbred Charities of America and in fact bring TCA to the next level.”
TCA formally affiliated with the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association (TOBA) in 2008 and is now the charitable arm of the organization. TCA’s affiliation with TOBA has allowed TCA to further expand its national reach and provides the continuity needed to carry on its mission into the future.
TCA’s primary fundraiser is its annual Stallion Season Auction held each December in Lexington, Ky. Donations to TCA are always accepted and can be made in the form of cash donations or as donations in lieu of flowers, birthday gifts or other occasions.
