Horsemen will have the opportunity to pledge a percentage of their total earnings to Thoroughbred Charities of America (TCA) during the upcoming race meet at Kentucky Downs. The pledge drive, called Horsemen Giving Back, will begin on Sept. 5, opening day at the Franklin, Kentucky, track.

“As a Thoroughbred owner myself, I was looking for an easy way to give back to horses and the people on the backstretch that take care of them,” said Nathan McCauley TCA board member and chairman of the pledge campaign committee. “Donating a small percentage of our purse money is an easy way to do that. I’m excited about all the horsemen that have stepped up to participate in this fun campaign, and there’s no better place to do it than Kentucky Downs.”

CJ Johnsen, live racing manager at Kentucky Downs, added, “Kentucky Downs is pleased to be able to assist TCA with its fundraising efforts. We are committed to giving back to the industry and whole-heartedly support TCA’s work.”

To participate in the campaign horsemen must complete a pledge form available online or in the Kentucky Downs racing office. Pledge forms should be submitted to TCA before Sept. 19
