Auction Items Needed to Benefit Paddock Foundation and TTEF Scholarships

ttalogoDear TTA Members,

Since 2005, the Texas Thoroughbred Educational Fund has awarded over $213,000 in scholarships to TTA members and their children to assist with their educational goals.

The Paddock Foundation was formed with a mission to support and advance the care of Thoroughbred racehorses after their racing careers by supporting rescue, retirement, rehabilitation, retraining and rehoming.

Both the TTEF and The Paddock Foundation are funded through individual contributions and proceeds from the sale of donated auction items.

At the upcoming Texas Thoroughbred Association Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet on February 16th at Sam Houston Race Park, we will conduct both live and silent auctions of items to benefit the TTEF and The Paddock Foundation.

Would you consider donating one or more auction items to this worthy endeavor?  Items may include, but are not limited to, sports or other event tickets, use of racetrack suites, gift certificates, jewelry, feed, discounts on goods or services such as horse transportation, books, memorabilia and artwork.

Please contact me no later than the close of business on Friday, February 1st to make your donation.  I can be reached at 512.458.6133 (office), 512.695.4542 (cell) or by email to

As always, thank you for your support.
