Jockey Club TIP Increases Shows and Offerings in 2017
The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program (TIP) announced Jan. 20 that it will offer awards and classes at more than 1,000 shows in 42 states and six Canadian provinces in 2017.
“The number of shows has grown every year since TIP’s inception,” said Kristin Werner Leshney, The Jockey Club senior counsel and TIP coordinator. “It’s a testament to how popular the Thoroughbred is as a sport horse and how many opportunities are offered to them when their careers in racing and breeding have ended.”
Awards are available for multiple disciplines, including eventing, dressage, Western and English pleasure, hunter/jumper, Western performance, games, polo, and polocrosse. Awards are also available at some events for Thoroughbreds within their first two years of showing or for Thoroughbreds within two years of their last start.
Additionally, the TIP is continuing its Youth Ambassador Program in 2017 with four returning ambassadors (bold below) and eight new ones. The ambassadors range from 10 states and Ontario and cover multiple disciplines, including hunters, jumpers, eventing, Western, dressage, and equitation. Ambassadors
