Beyond the Wire benefits from a committed group of Sponsors that are all established leaders in their respective areas of the Thoroughbred racing community. Bound by a shared belief that thoroughbred horses are the epicenter of racing, and by an undeniable love of the animal, the Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association, The Maryland Jockey Club, the Maryland Horse Breeders Association and the Maryland jockeys have joined forces to create a comprehensive aftercare program. For more information on our sponsors, please read on.
The Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association is the officially authorized organization that represents, assists and promotes the interests of Maryland’s Thoroughbred owners and trainers. The MTHA also manages an expansive program designed to support backstretch employees at Maryland based racetracks. Besides supporting the people in the industry, the MTHA has contributed to Thoroughbred aftercare through the giving of grants for retraining and rehabilitation facilities and sponsorships of retired racehorse events.

The prestigious Maryland Jockey Club was founded in Annapolis, Maryland in 1743 and is currently owned by the Stronach Group. It consists of the following racing properties: Pimlico Race Course, Laurel Park, and the former Bowie Training Center. In addition to racing, the Maryland Jockey Club is heavily involved in Thoroughbred aftercare efforts. For more information, check out; Pimlico and Laurel Park
The main purposes of the Maryland Horse Breeders Association have always been to encourage, promote, protect and improve the horse breeding industry in Maryland. While emphasis traditionally has been placed on the production of Thoroughbred racehorses, the MHBA encourages all sports relating to the use of horses and strongly encourages appropriate second careers for racehorses and responsible retirement plans.

The Maryland jockeys have also organized themselves and are pledging their much appreciated support to Beyond the Wire.
Northview Stallion Station
More recently, Northview Stallion Station also became one of sponsors with their efforts focusing on sanctuary horses. Their support has benefited an extremely worthy group of former racehorses…those who cannot go onto second careers for various reasons. We are thankful to them for their partnership and interest in this particular OTTB population. Read more about them here: https://northviewstallions.com
