The Jockey Club Press Release

LEXINGTON, Ky.—The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program (T.I.P.), which encourages the retraining of Thoroughbreds into other disciplines upon completion of careers in racing or breeding, today announced the winners and other placings from its 2023 performance awards program.

The performance awards recognize Thoroughbreds accumulating the most points at all horse shows and cover a wide variety of disciplines and experience levels. In 2023, 734 Thoroughbreds from 44 states and five provinces competed in more than 15,000 classes, divisions, and events. Division awards were calculated in 16 categories as well as 99 discipline divisions and nine junior rider divisions. Category and division awards included the Green OTTB category for Thoroughbreds that last raced in 2021, 2022, or 2023, with generous sponsorship for these awards provided by Thoroughbred Charities of America (TCA). Winners of the performance awards will receive ribbons, prize money, and a variety of prizes, including coolers, halters, bags, tumblers, and apparel. The complete list of winners and participants is available at tjctip.com/PerformanceAwardsWinners.

In addition to the category and division awards, the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA) sponsored a performance award for horses adopted from TAA-accredited organizations, and the Retired Racehorse Project (RRP) provided awards for top-placing RRP Makeover alumni.
