Paragon Farms Pledges $100,000 Annual TAA Donation At Preakness

Paragon Farms is proud to announce that it will be the sponsor for the $100,000 Sir Barton Stakes, held during the 2022 Preakness Weekend at Pimlico Race Course. Taking place on May 21, the Sir Barton Stakes will benefit the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA).

Founded by Thoroughbred owners and breeders, Brandon and Diannah Perry, Paragon Farms originated in Lexington, Kentucky and eventually branched to Ocala, Florida. After successfully investing their earnings in real estate, the Perry’s felt compelled to give back to retired Thoroughbreds, by way of the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.

Paragon Farms entered into an agreement to annually donate $100,000 to the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance as the title sponsor of the Sir Barton Stakes for three consecutive years beginning at the Preakness 147.

“Diannah and I are driven to make a difference, and proud to support the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance. We are honored to be a part of the Preakness. We are encouraged by the TAA’s commitment to raising awareness for aftercare cooperation and inspiring action, to protect the horses that have given us personally so much. Together, through lasting change, responsibility will have a long-term positive impact on the sport we love.”

“The generosity of Brandon and Diannah Perry is truly astounding,” said Funding and Events Manager, Emily (Dresen) Scandore. “The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance is incredibly grateful and excited for this newfound partnership with Paragon Farms and looks forward to putting their donation toward our 82 accredited charities helping thousands of retired Thoroughbreds.”

The Paragon Farms check presentation to the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance will take place Saturday, May 21, following the running of race 11, the Sir Barton Stakes Sponsored by Brandon and Diannah Perry to Benefit the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance. Post time for the field of ten three-year-olds $100,000 stakes race is 4:53 pm ET.
