In an effort to promote off the track Thoroughbred adoptions the Thoroughbred Horse Show Association offers owners of off the track Jockey Club Registered Thoroughbreds horse shows to give these horses valuable show experience in their second careers. These shows also highlight the versatility and athleticism of the breed to promote adoptions at facilities that work with retired racehorses in getting them adopted into new homes and second careers.
The Jockey Club launches 2012 pilot program called The Thoroughbred Incentive Program with a committment of $100,000. This program promotes the versatility of the Thoroughbred horse breed off the track by sanctioning T.I.P. approved horse show classes across the country and giving out awards to winning Thoroughbred horses.
