Trainer of Breeders' Cup Classic winner and Pegasus World Cup contender, Gun Runner

As featured on the cover of the winter 2017 issue of Trainer Magazine

The Breeders' Cup for many is the pinnacle of North American thoroughbred racing. It's where all divisional champions are crowned. But not every racehorse will be a Breeders' Cup contender and not every racehorse will win a race.

But, this doesn't mean that they won't excel in other equine disciplines. That's why the work undertaken by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance is so important. Please take a moment to watch the video below or visit their website to learn more about this excellent not for profit alliance of key industry stakeholders, all working to showcase the thoroughbred racehorse. Thanks to their work (and to borrow the Breeders' Cup slogan) for many of the horses they work with, indeed, "the best is yet to come".
