AAEP On Call Program to Support Breeders’ Cup Telecast

Nov 3, 2021

Two equine veterinarians will be serving the American Association of Equine Practitioners’ On Call program during the NBC Sports telecast of the Nov. 5–6 Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club in Del Mar, Calif.

Scott Hay, DVM, and Sara Langsam, VMD, will be at Del Mar as AAEP On Call spokespersons to provide timely health updates to the media and viewing audience regarding the athletes in each race.

Dr. Hay is president and managing shareholder of Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based racetrack practice TFB Equine. Dr. Hay joined the practice soon after receiving his veterinary degree from Kansas State University in 1988. In addition, Dr. Hay is the 2021 president of the AAEP.

Dr. Langsam is a shareholder in TFB Equine and started the practice’s Long Island, New York-division in 2012, servicing Belmont Park and Aqueduct Racetrack year-round. She joined the practice in 2003, one year after receiving her veterinary degree from the University of Pennsylvania.

The On Call program, which started in 1991, serves over 30 televised equine events annually. Nearly 20 media-trained AAEP-member veterinarians share their veterinary expertise as On Call spokespersons.

Currently, AAEP reaches more than 5 million horse owners through its over 9,000 members worldwide and is actively involved in ethics issues, practice management, research and continuing education in the equine veterinary profession and horse industry.
