The Retired Racehorse Project (RRP) and Thoroughbred Charities of America (TCA) jointly announced June 21 that TCA will be the title sponsor of the Thoroughbred Makeover and National Symposium, which will be held Oct. 27-30 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.

The TCA Thoroughbred Makeover is slated to feature 478 trainers from across North America who are working throughout the year to prepare recently retired Thoroughbred racehorses to compete for more than $100,000 in ten equestrian disciplines.

“The Thoroughbred Makeover is an important part of aftercare as it works to create a demand for Thoroughbreds in various disciplines,” said TCA president-elect Michael McMahon. “With a demand and market for Thoroughbreds, more of them are being placed in new homes and in second careers once their days on the track are over. We are pleased to be able to support the efforts of the Retired Racehorse Project and the Thoroughbred Makeover.”

Added RRP President Steuart Pittman, “There is probably no group of people on earth more committed to the welfare of Thoroughbred horses than the board of TCA. Their support and guidance have made it possible for RRP to move forward, and without it there would be no Thoroughbred Makeover. Together we will show the world that an off-track Thoroughbred is an asset, not a burden
