The 2022 Kentucky Thoroughbred Breeders' Incentive Funds (KTBIF) have been released, totaling $17.4 million. Nine out of the top 10 earners in the U.S. in 2022 were Kentucky-breds and race horses from the state won 69% of all graded stakes races in the U.S. as well as 78% of all Grade I races. To qualify, the mare must remain in the state during gestation, and the final award amounts are based on the foal's eventual earnings at the racetrack. A list of the 2022 award winners, along with the amount awarded and other interesting statistics, can be found on the KHRC website.

“The Kentucky Thoroughbred Breeders' Incentive Fund accomplishes its mission of keeping mares and foals in our beautiful state, bolstering our billion-dollar strong equine industry, and providing more than 60,000 jobs for hardworking Kentuckians,” said Gov. Andy Beshear.
