The American Association Of Equine Sports Preservation Makes A Splash At Breeder's Cup, Embraces Exciting 2014 Horse Racing Season

ARCADIA, Calif., Nov. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Just weeks after the  Breeder's Cup in Arcadia, CA, the  American Association of Equine Sports Preservation (AAESP) continues to collect signatures for a petition to preserve the iconic Hollywood Park race track in California, while ramping up for an exciting 2014 horse racing season, which includes exhibits at the  Dubai International Arabian Horse Championship and Fair (DIAHC) on March 20-22, 2014, and the world's richest race ( $10 million prize money), the  Dubai World Cup (DWC) on March 29, 2014, it was announced. Nominations for the DWC open in January, with invitations to be sent out in early March 2014. 

The AAESP is asking horse lovers, members of the race-going public, and horse industry insiders to sign the petition. In addition, the association will have a major presence at the final Hollywood Park Meet and at  The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) Annual Convention in Nashville, TN December 7 –11, 2013.

AAESP, founded by Allison Booth earlier this year, made a big splash at the Breeder's Cup World Championships in early November, gathering signatures from famed trainers, jockeys, and owners in a major petition drive to save  Hollywood Park and the beautiful rare flamingos that reside at the park. During its racing heyday, Hollywood Park played host to some of the nation's greatest horses: Seabiscuit, Citation and Seattle Slew. It is the oldest and widest turf track course in the country.  

Booth said one of her first signatures came from Chantal Sutherland, a glamorous model, television personality, and one of the few female jockeys to achieve success in the horse racing industry. Booth also received celebrity endorsements from Hall Of Fame trainers Jack Van Berg and Bill Mott, and Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, as well as several testimonials.

Booth said her goal is to build on the success she achieved at the Breeder's Cup and have 10,000 signatures to present to the National Trust for Historic Preservation by March 2, 2014. To sign the petition, go to:  http://bit.ly/SaveHollywoodPark.

Booth said the AAEP convention this December is "yet another source of signatures for the petition." Guests will include veterinarians, AAEP officers, board members and honorees, horse owners, exhibitors, education partners and friends of the AAEP Foundation.
