    THE THOROUGHBRED SHOWCASE,
    SATURDAY, AUGUST 31

    Auburn, Wash. (August 28) – The Thoroughbred Showcase—featuring over 30 former racehorses to prospective new owners—will be held 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, August 31, at the WTBOA Sales Pavilion at Emerald Downs.

    Hosted by The Prodigious Fund, The Thoroughbred Showcase includes horses from 3-to-12 years old which are suitable for eventing, hunter/jumper, dressage, trail, polo, light riding, companion horse, barrel racing, and 4-H.

    The event begins with a public viewing, 9 to 11 a.m., at the Temporary Stalls at Emerald Downs. Each horse will have contact information for prospective buyers to contact the horse's owner and trainer to facilitate a private sale. Also, Emerald Downs veterinarians will be on hand to take x-rays or perform pre-purchase soundness exams.

    From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., horses will be led in-hand through the walking ring at the WTBOA Sales Pavilion.

    "Our goal is to make the Thoroughbred Showcase the "go-to" place for your next sport-horse prospect," said Emerald Downs Director of Marketing Sophia McKee. "By creating a competitive market for these horses after they are done racing, we can ensure their future success and security. The owners and trainers just want to find good homes for these horses."

    “Thoroughbreds are incredible athletes on and off the track,” McKee said. “If you’ve worked with them before, you surely are a fan of their work ethic and intelligence. They enjoy doing so many different things.”

    The Prodigious Fund is an organization dedicated to recognizing and supporting positive efforts made within the Thoroughbred aftercare community for the re-homing, promotion and care of retired racehorses.
