    Default Thoroughbred Incentive Program -375 shows, T.I.P. #

    Thoroughbred Incentive Program Approves more than 375 Shows, Introduces Number Card

    The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program (T.I.P.) announced today that it has approved more than 375 shows from the 268 applications that it received. Applications represented approximately 400 horse shows in 37 states and Canadian provinces.

    “We’ve approved shows in numerous disciplines, including eventing, dressage, Western and English pleasure, and hunter/jumper,” said Kristin Werner Leshney, legal associate for The Jockey Club. “We added series year-end awards for associations with multiple shows, and they’ve been very popular.”

    Once again, T.I.P. will disburse $100,000 in prize money, ribbons and prizes, including saddle pads, stall plaques, coolers, halters and tote bags.

    “In addition to awards for shows, we have renewed the out-of-competition awards,” said Leshney. “Winners of the Thoroughbred of the Year Award and the Young Rider of the Year Award will each receive $5,000 and other prizes.”

    Applications for the non-competition awards will be available at tjctip.com in May with a deadline of June 28, 2013.

    T.I.P. has also introduced the T.I.P. number card, which distinguishes horse and rider combinations and should be provided to horse shows as proof of eligibility. Owners/riders can apply for a T.I.P. number at tjctip.com. Only Thoroughbreds that have been registered with The Jockey Club or, new for 2013, a foreign Thoroughbred stud book recognized by The Jockey Club are eligible to participate in T.I.P. classes and awards.

    Created and announced in October 2011, T.I.P. recognizes and rewards the versatility of the Thoroughbred through sponsorship of Thoroughbred classes and high point awards at sanctioned horse shows. In addition to the complete schedule of T.I.P.-sponsored shows, other information about the program is also available on the T.I.P. website. Those interested in T.I.P. can follow the program at www.facebook.com/tjctip.

In fulfillment of its mission, The Jockey Club provides support and leadership on a wide range of important industry initiatives and it serves the information and technology needs of owners, breeders, media, fans and farms, among others.

    Three cheers for Kristin and TJC! What an important incentive they are funding and promoting. And they don't just support American shows, many Canadian horse shows are beneficiaries as well.

    Truly an example of an industry being responsive and progressive.
