The Thoroughbred Alliance Show Series (TASS) awards banquet, held Feb. 1 at The Carriage Room at Laurel Park, recognized the top show horses to participate in the Thoroughbred-only horse show series in the Mid-Atlantic region in 2013.

More than 130 people attended for the awards presentations, lunch and a day at the races. The inaugural year of TASS resulted in raising more than $30,000 for Thoroughbred aftercare in 2013.

Among the awards presented were those for top Maryland-breds of 2013, sponsored by the Maryland Horse Breeders Association. Taking High Point honors was Kara Evans' Testamonialy. The gelding, now 18, is a son of Reputed Testamony—Don't Pass Me By, by Parfaitement. He last raced in 2001, having made 25 starts and winning twice to earn $40,677 on the track.

Rounding out the top six Maryland-breds shown during the series were: Bokus (owner Michael Bordwell), Hat City (Lauren Moran), Hay Frolick (Courtney Eagle), Gaming Fool (Nelda Vera Stables) and Woolford (Linda Anderson).

Maryland Million was sponsor of the High Point Maryland Million-sired horse, and Testamonialy once again took top honors. He was followed by Hat City (McKendree), Battle Run (Partner's Hero), Daniel (Lion Hearted), Petey Cap (Dance with Ravens) and Woolford (Mojave Moon).
