Hidden Brook Farm Pledges $1,000 One-Day Match Donation to TAA Holiday Giving Campaign December 5th

Hidden Brook Farm Pledges $1,000 One-Day Match Donation to TAA Holiday Giving Campaign December 5th

As part of the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA)’s month-long Holiday Giving Campaign, Hidden Brook Farm has pledged to match all donations up to $1,000 made to the TAA on Dec. 5, 2022. Not only does Hidden Brook dedicate a portion of its operation to caring for their retired Thoroughbreds— the breeding, racing, and sales enterprise continually participates in supporting industry aftercare initiatives, such as the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.


“As an industry, we cannot underscore the importance of the day-in and day-out efforts of the TAA,” said Hidden Brook Farm Partner, Jack Brothers. “Since their inception, they have effectively increased awareness for the need of aftercare and should be applauded for assuming the role of energetic ambassadors for positive reform and long-term responsibility.”

“Hidden Brook Farm is fully invested in the Thoroughbred industry from start to finish and is dedicated to Thoroughbred welfare both on and off the track,” said TAA Funding and Events Manager, Emily Dresen. “Hidden Brook not only supports the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance as an industry initiative and insurance to the longevity of the sport, but provides their own in-house retirement program and advocates for second career initiatives, such as the Retired Racehorse Project.”

TAA’s Holiday Giving Campaign commenced November 29th and is scheduled to conclude New Year’s Eve. Those wishing to support the TAA, its 81 accredited organizations, and thousands of retired Thoroughbreds can donate through the TAA’s website or text DONATE to 56651. During the Holiday Giving Campaign, TAA is also offering donors the benefit of sending digital holiday cards to colleagues, friends, and loved ones.

Throughout the end of the year, the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance will continue to host special one-day only donation matches with some of horse racing’s biggest names. For more chances to double your donation, watch the TAA’s social media, website, and industry advertisements for the next Holiday Giving match day announcement.
