Tampa Winners Ringing the Bell for Retired Racehorses



PRESS RELEASE


OLDSMAR, FL—The inscription on the giant bell inside the Tampa Bay Downs winner’s circle reminds horsemen, jockeys and fans that their love of the sport wouldn’t be possible without the Thoroughbreds that make it happen.


The message reads “This Bell Rings For The Love & Respect Of The Thoroughbred!!” It underscores a conviction that animals bred for centuries to give their utmost in competition deserve the chance to show their worth after their on-track careers have ended.
