ThoroughbredThe Jockey Club is happy to announce that the Thoroughbred Incentive Program (T.I.P.) will be offered in 2013 after the completion of a successful pilot program in 2012. The Jockey Club launched T.I.P. to encourage the retraining of Thoroughbreds into other disciplines by offering sponsorship for Thoroughbred-only classes and divisions and high point Thoroughbred awards at open horse shows and competitions.

Horse show organizers who would like to offer a T.I.P. Thoroughbred class and/or high point award at their show in 2013 are now invited to complete the T.I.P. application online at tjctip.com. The deadline for applications is December 15, 2012. T.I.P. sponsorships are for shows taking place from March 2013 through December 2013.

T.I.P. sponsorships are available for a variety of disciplines, including eventing, dressage, hunters, jumpers, Western, English pleasure, polo, and foxhunting. T.I.P. awards will include ribbons, prizes, and in some cases, prize money.

Please note, changes have been made to the menu of classes and awards that are available. Horse shows are welcome to apply for awards, classes, and divisions customized to their specific show using the "other" boxes provided on the application.

Horse shows offering classes for Thoroughbreds at multiple shows are encouraged to apply to T.I.P. for the series of shows, with ribbons at each individual show and a series-end award offering prize money. To do so, place the series name as the "Show Name" and in Special Requests, note the number of horse shows that would require ribbons and the type of year-end award preferred. T.I.P. will follow up with exact dates for the other horse shows via email.

Thoroughbreds registered with The Jockey Club or a foreign Thoroughbred stud book approved by The Jockey Club are eligible for participation in all T.I.P. classes and awards. Horse owners interested in participating in T.I.P. can find more information regarding eligibility and assistance with identification of Thoroughbreds at tjctip.com.
