Special Thanks to the Pennsylvania Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association for sponsoring this inspiring event that recognizes teens from throughout the county for their outstanding volunteer contributions!
The Pennsylvania Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association (PTHA)works hard to protect and provide for the Parx Racing horsemen through the guarantee of live racing, horsemen's rights, health care and pension for horsemen, benevolence programs, and more. In addition, the PTHA has created the Horsemen's Purchasing Association (HPA) and Turning for Home. The HPA offers quality products at discount prices, including feed, bedding, supplements, and tack. Turning for Home is a racehorse retirement program that has safely retired over 1,000 horses from Parx Racing since 2008, and is considered a model program for the racing industry.
