The 2015 Thoroughbred Alliance Show Series schedule was officially announced today. The Series will include thoroughbred shows throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Kentucky. The shows target off track thoroughbreds searching for new careers after racing. A portion of proceeds from each TASS show goes to thoroughbred only rescue and retraining 501c 3 charities.
Classes include Hunter, Jumper, Dressage and a few shows include western, hunt teams and pairs classes. In addition, there are Green classes for those thoroughbreds at the early stages of training. There is no cost to join TASS and members submit their horses Jockey Club T.I. P. cards and complete an online nomination form for their horses and for riders to be eligible for year end points.

The Thoroughbred Alliance Show Series (TASS) was established in 2012 to promote thoroughbreds in second careers through a series of horse shows in the Mid Atlantic region and Kentucky. Horses and riders accumulate points throughout the season, with an awards banquet held at the end of the year. A portion of the proceeds from each show is donated to 501c3 Thoroughbred rescue and aftercare organizations.
