The Thoroughbred Club of America was established on March 12, 1932 by a group of 15 men who assembled in the LaFayette Hotel in Lexington, KY. Their purpose in creating The Thoroughbred Club was to promote, foster and encourage closer cooperation and better business relations in the Thoroughbred horse industry.
Throughout the years The Thoroughbred Club has grown in prestige, influence and membership. Since forming 80 years ago, the Club continues to uphold the values and purpose that make it one of a kind. TCA provides a venue for the interchange of ideas, methods, and information in relation to the breeding, racing and marketing of Thoroughbred horses as well as encouraging public interest.
This Fall the Thoroughbred Club is working hand in hand with the Keeneland Chaplaincy to provide assistance to Keeneland's backstretch workers.
TCA will be collecting gently used winter coats, boots, blankets and pillows that Members or Guests would like to donate to this wonderful cause. Other items such as non-perishable foods, personal hygiene items, twin air mattresses and monetary donations are also welcome. These items can be dropped off at the Club anytime over the next few months.
Bobby Aldridge, Keeneland's Chaplain, will be assisting TCA in directing these goods and funds to local families in need. The Keeneland Chaplaincy provides assistance to backstretch workers in many forms. In addition to clothing and food, the Chaplaincy also assists workers with utility bills, medical and dental bills and funeral expenses. To learn more about how you can help please call the Thoroughbred Club at 859-254-4282 or Chaplain Bobby Aldridge at 859-288-4149. Donations can be dropped off at the Thoroughbred Club through November 10th.
