ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 10, 2012) -- Starting with the April 2012 issue of California Thoroughbred, the official publication of the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA), this year’s crop of foals born in the Golden State will be included as full-page advertorials with each page featuring six foals from a specific Thoroughbred farm, including information on every foal and that facility. For this service, a fee of $500 per page will be charged, representing a discount of more than 50 percent on the cost of a regular full-page advertisement in the monthly magazine.
The deadline for submitting photos of California-bred foals located at one farm in sets of five for a particular issue will be the first of the month prior to that magazine; Feb. 1 for the March issue; March 1 for the April issue; April 1 for the May issue; May 1 for the June issue; June 1 for the July issue; and July 1 for the Aug. issue. All photos submitted need to be at a high quality resolution of at least 300 dpi and include the details of the foal’s sire, dam, sex, date of birth and breeder, and the magazine reserves the right to request a replacement image.
For further information about this new innovation, please contact either the magazine’s Managing Editor, Rudi Groothedde, at rudi [at] ctba [dot] com, or its Advertising Manager, Loretta Veiga, at Loretta [at] ctba [dot] com.
Additionally, breeders and farms are still welcome to submit individual photos of their 2012 foals for inclusion on the CTBA’s web site, www.ctba.com, copies of which can be sent to its Managing Editor, Ken Gurnick, at ctbaken [at] aol [dot] com.
