A BREED ORGANIZATION WITH OFFICIAL STATUS.
Since the State of Texas offers pari-mutuel wagering on Arabian races with racetracks around the state hosting races for our breed, the Arabian horse is written into the Texas Racing Act as a racing breed along with the Thoroughbred, Quarter horse, Appaloosa and Paint. The Texas Arabian Breeders Association (TABA) is the organization mandated by the Texas Racing Commission to oversee the Accredited Texas Bred Program (ATB) for Arabian racehorses, a breeder incentive program.
Even in challenging conditions of the horse industry over the last decade, Texas Arabian racing has performed quite well. We have continued to strengthen both the Arabian breed's position in the racing industry, and the popularity of the racing discipline within the Purebred Arabian market. We are optimistic about increasing purse monies for the Arabian breed at the racetracks, and will continue to make good progress for more racing opportunities. With a solid platform for growth, Arabian racing´s innovative leaders are on track to attract more Arabian racing participants and fans of the sport.
"A multitude of small delights constitute happiness."
