The T.I.P program through the Jockey Club works to encourage the retraining of Thoroughbreds into other disciplines upon completion of careers in racing or breeding.
T.I.P. offers sponsorship for Thoroughbred-only classes and divisions, high point Thoroughbred awards at open horse shows and competitions, a Thoroughbred of the Year Award and a Young Rider of the Year Award.
For purposes of eligibility for all T.I.P. classes and awards, a “Thoroughbred” is defined as any horse that has been registered with The Jockey Club. In order to participate in a T.I.P. class or be eligible for a T.I.P. award, owners and riders must obtain a T.I.P. Number.
Please remember to compare your horse’s markings to those listed on the Certificate of Foal Registration to ensure you have the right horse. Don’t have a copy of the Certificate? Research the tattoo to make sure the name matches the tattoo. Horse owners who do not have access to a Thoroughbred’s Certificate and who are not able to research a Thoroughbred’s tattoo may contact the Jockey Club T.I.P. for assistance with identification of the horse.
