Tyler's Tribe - UI Childrens Hospital

The Iowa Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association (ITBOA) is very proud to have Iowa Bred Tyler's Tribe running in the Breeders Cup on Friday, November 4th. In honor of this huge accomplishment, the ITBOA would like to raise funds for the University of Iowa Children's Hospital, where Tyler's Tribe namesake, 8-year-old Tyler James Juhl, was treated for leukemia.

You can also send via Venmo to @ITBOA or mail a check made out to UI Stead Family Children's Hospital to:
