The Thoroughbred Horse Show Association (THSA) will host its fourth annual show on Sunday May 3 at the world-renowned Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. Entries for the event, which will benefit Our Mims Retirement Haven for broodmares, close April 18.
This year's renewal is held in conjunction with Thoroughbred Alliance Show Series (TASS) and the Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program (TIP). Both groups offer year-end awards to nominated entrants. (See www.thoroughbredalliance.org and www.jockeyclub.com for more information.)
Western classes are on the agenda for the first time in addition to jumping, dressage and pleasure classes. The popular in-hand classes are once again on the schedule to give owners an opportunity to show off their Thoroughbreds while giving their horses experience away from the track.
“Thanks to the support of our generous sponsors, we can continue our goal of giving owners an affordable option to ride or handwalk their Thoroughbreds under actual show conditions,” said THSA executive director Jan Roehl. “The horses gain valuable experience and fans enjoy seeing horses from the track transitioning to new careers.”
This year's sponsors include AmWest Entertainment, Bantry Farms, Columbus Circle Partners, Horse Racing Nation, Hurricane Boys Racing Stable, Juddmonte Farms, My Meadowview, and Taylor Made Farm. Sponsorships, which include sponsor's name on promotional and other material, can be obtained by contacting Roehl or via www.tbhorseshow.com. A complete prize list and entry forms can be obtained from the website or from Jan Roehl at (859) 559-1409 or [email protected]
One of the marquee names at last year's edition was Rahy's Attorney, Canada's champion turf runner of 2008 and an earner of more than $2-million. The gelding dabbled in a second career as a Keeneland outrider mount. At past shows, one of the favorites was Train Robbery, who enjoyed her time in the spotlight after successful careers as both a racehorse and a broodmare.
