Thoroughbred Incentive Program awards available for 2014 season


Applications are now available for The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program’s (T.I.P.) 2014 Performance Awards.

The 2014 awards, which are worth more than $8,000, include ribbons, prize money, leather lead shanks and T.I.P. customized lead ropes. The Performance Awards will be tabulated for horse shows that are held between December 1, 2013, and November 30, 2014.

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.

“The response to our Performance Awards pilot program in 2013 was tremendous,” said Kristin Leshney, legal associate for The Jockey Club and the administrator of T.I.P. “We are pleased to be able to provide this program again this year, and especially pleased to add prize money as an award.”

Performance Award results are submitted by owners and riders. Forms must be postmarked by December 20, 2014, and are available on the Thoroughbred Incentive Program’s website.

The Jockey Club also presents two non-competition awards, for Thoroughbred of the Year and Young Rider, each with a $5,000 award. The application deadline for those awards is June 30.
