CTBA Sales To Participate In NTRA Legislative Action Campaign’s ¼% Check-Off Program

The National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) announced Monday that the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA), a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of Thoroughbred breeding and racing in California and host of two annual Thoroughbred sales, will participate in the NTRA Legislative Action Campaign’s ¼% Check-off Program, which supports the NTRA’s federal lobbying efforts. The CTBA’s participation will commence with its August 10 Northern California Sale at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, Calif. and continue at its January Mixed Sale.

Starting with the August 10 sale, buyers and consignors/sellers at CTBA sales may elect to have .25% of the sale price of each horse donated to the Legislative Action Campaign. This percentage equals $2.50 for every $1,000 in sale price. The CTBA joins Keeneland, Fasig-Tipton, Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company and the Washington Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association as Thoroughbred sales companies that participate in the Campaign’s fundraising efforts.

“The CTBA recognizes the importance of having the NTRA’s skilled and consistent presence in Washington, D.C., on federal legislative matters,” said CTBA President Doug Burge. “We are glad to be able to help support the NTRA by offering our buyers and sellers the opportunity to contribute to the voluntary ¼% Check-off Program.”

“We are pleased and grateful to have the CTBA participate in our Legislative Action Campaign’s ¼% Check-off Program,” said NTRA President and Chief Executive Officer Alex Waldrop. “CTBA membership, president Doug Burge and his team and the CTBA board of directors are long-time supporters of the NTRA’s programs and this enhances the relationship with our Western region constituents.”
