Great fun, and all for a GOOD CAUSE: to help support scholarships, THRUST industry grants, racehorse retirement and retraining, therapeutic riding programs, the backstretch daycare center at Emerald Downs, and much more!!

For over 50 years, the Washington Thoroughbred Foundation has supported the Thoroughbred industry and the community at large through benevolence, scholarships, youth programs and more. With your generous support we hope to continue that legacy well into the future!
