If you’re one of the brave riders heading down to Texas in two weeks, I sincerely respect your dedication to driving long distances for competition. But really, it’s the AEC’s, you can’t miss it!! This year, competing in the Championships got a little bit sweeter for those of you riding Thoroughbreds, as the prizes available have increased exponentially! One of the best parts of the AEC’s is the prizes, so why not set yourself up to win a little more?
If you’re partnered with a Jockey Club registered Thoroughbred for the 2013 Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships, you can take a few easy steps prior to the event to put your name in for the chance to win more swag and top Thoroughbred trophies. The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program (TIP) is supporting both the AECs and the breed by offering prizes in all the levels for both first and second highest placed TIP registered Thoroughbreds.
What’s a TIP registered Thoroughbred, you ask? In order to be eligible for a TIP number you have to have one of the following:
- The Jockey Club Certificate of Foal Registration (or similar document from a foreign stud book) or a copy thereof OR
- The horse’s lip tattoo, the horse’s 5-cross pedigree and the successful tattoo lookup result from The Jockey Club’s Tattoo Identification Services, (located HERE) OR
- A letter from The Jockey Club verifying the horse’s identity
Go Champion Thoroughbreds!
