I just wanted to share with everyone the news that the Jockey Club has officially started the Thoroughbred Incentive Program to improve the likelihood that TB's find great show homes after life on the track. They are allotting a certain amount of money to sponsor TB only divisions that include prize money among other things. They also have a grant set up for horses that aren't necessarily show horses but do participate in other things such as therapeutic riding. Some of the information about this can be found at this website: http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/65561/tjc-launches-thoroughbred-incentive-program
They have a link here to the applications so if you are interested in hosting a show with prize money for a TB division, or know of an exceptional OTTB go and apply!!
The RRTP program has also selected it's trainers for their training project. We here at The Thoroughbred Chonicles wish them the best of luck with their OTTB's and are looking forward to reading and hearing about their progress.
As for me, I am off to set up the stalls for Pogo and Ryker and am anxiously awaiting their arrival later this week!
