The Jockey Club created the Thoroughbred Incentive Program (T.I.P.)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, year end Performance Awards, a Thoroughbred of the Year Award and a Young Rider of the Year Award.
General Membership: The Rider must be a League member in order for points to count. Any horse shown by a member rider will earn points in the division. Rider membership must be received in the League Office within 10 days after the completion of a League show in order for points from that show to count. Points will not be retroactive.
Annual Fee: The Annual Fee is $40 per rider, payable and mailed to Marshall & Sterling Insurance League, 319 Main Street, Saugerties, NY 12477. Alternatively, riders may apply online at www.HitsShows.com, or at any member horse show.
