The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program, designed to encourage the retraining of Thoroughbreds into other disciplines at the end of their racing careers, has announced the winners from its 2019 performance awards program. The list is available to view at tjctip.com/PerformanceAwardsWinners.
“We received applications representing 630 Thoroughbreds competing in more than 12,500 classes and divisions during the 2019 award year,” said Kristin Werner, senior counsel for The Jockey Club and the administrator of T.I.P. “Winners will receive ribbons, prize money, and a variety of prizes, including custom Horseware coolers, halters, keychains, and apparel.”
Performance awards will again be available in 2020 and will be based on results in shows from Dec. 1, 2019, through Nov. 30, 2020. The deadline for submissions is Dec. 20. Updated forms are available at tjctip.com/About/TBPAF.
In response to the ongoing cancellations of horse shows due to COVID-19, stand-alone divisions have been added for online dressage shows and online horses shows (non-dressage) for 2020. More information is available at tjctip.com/About/TBPAFI.
