More than 6,700 awards and classes at more than 1,400 shows in 43 states and six Canadian provinces will be offered for off-track Thoroughbreds in 2023, The Jockey Club's Thoroughbred Incentive Program (T.I.P) announced on Tuesday.
Awards are available for multiple disciplines, including eventing, dressage, Western and English pleasure, ranch riding, hunter/jumper, endurance, barrel racing, polo, and polocrosse.
T.I.P. Championships in hunters, jumpers, combined test, dressage, English pleasure, and English in-hand will return this year to Stable View in Aiken, South Carolina, from Oct. 5 through Oct. 8. T.I.P. Western & Central Dressage Championships will be held Oct. 11 through Oct. 14. at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington during the Retired Racehorse Project's (RRP) Thoroughbred Makeover and National Symposium, presented by Thoroughbred Charities of America.
“The Jockey Club is proud of the expansive number of T.I.P.-approved awards, classes, and championships that showcase the diversity Thoroughbreds have in their second careers,” Kristin Werner, senior counsel for The Jockey Club and coordinator of T.I.P., said. “Our partnership with organizations like Stable View and the Retired Racehorse Project further expand opportunities for Thoroughbreds to excel in multiple disciplines beyond the track, and we are proud to see the continued growth and success of T.I.P in 2023.”
A full calendar of shows offering awards is available at The T.I.P. website and will be updated as dates are confirmed.
