SARATOGA SPRINGS — The inaugural Equestricon convention has announced a partnership with the Lexington-based Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA), which organizers say will bring 20 accredited aftercare groups from across the country to the event. Thoroughbred aftercare refers to the practice of retiring, retraining, and relocating horses once their days on the racetrack are over, which has become a preeminent issue in the racing industry, according to TAA. In addition to these groups, the TAA will present two panels intended educate attendees about aftercare: “Aftercare Pathways” and “Stories: OTTB Successes.” Equestricon will be held on Aug. 14-15 in the Saratoga Springs City Center.
