Thoroughbreds are versatile athletes, which makes them ideally suited for any number of disciplines beyond the racetrack. The Thoroughbred Incentive Program (T.I.P.) helps showcase the breed's many talents at all levels of competition and encourages the retraining of Thoroughbreds once they have finished their racing or breeding career. T.I.P. recognizes and rewards the versatility of the Thoroughbred through sponsorship of Thoroughbred classes and high point awards at sanctioned horse shows and through two annual awards, the T.I.P. Thoroughbred of the Year Award and the T.I.P. 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 or a foreign Thoroughbred stud book approved by The Jockey Club and the International Stud Book Committee.
