Just prior to the start of the FT-TX Yearling Sale, there will be a live auction of artwork to benefit The Paddock Foundation and the Texas Thoroughbred Educational Fund (TTEF).
Items include a framed, autographed photo montage of Flat Out, winner of the 2013 Suburban Handicap, and a framed photo montage of 1946 Triple Crown Winner Assault and the 1950 Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes winner Middleground. Both Texas-breds were campaigned by the King Ranch and trained by Max Hirsch.
The Paddock Foundation is a 501C3 charitable organization with a mission to ensure the lifelong welfare of the Thoroughbred horse through supporting rescue, retirement, rehabilitation, retraining and rehoming.
The TTEF provides grants and awards to benefit TTA members and their children to further their educational opportunities.
