Thoroughbred Industry Employee Awards, presented by Godolphin

The Thoroughbred Industry Employee Awards presented by Godolphin recognize and reward the outstanding talent, diligence and commitment of the farm and racing stable staff who are at the heart of our sport.

The awards themselves are separated into six distinct categories which carry a total prize-pool of $128,000, along with specially commissioned trophies for the winners.

Claiming Crown

A partnership between the National Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association and the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association, the Claiming Crown was envisioned to be the claiming horse owner’s Breeders’ Cup; a special racing event, created for the sometime-forgotten “average owner,” and featuring some of the most competitive horses in the country. Every horse owner, regardless of the level at which their stable competes, has an equal chance to participate, as the Claiming Crown is open to all claiming horses irrespective of where they were foaled or race.

We get questions all the time: "How do you buy a horse?" "How much does a horse cost?" "Don't you have to be a millionaire to own a horse?" "Do you need to know how to ride a horse to own one?" "How do you find a trainer?"

TOBA's Ownership Seminar at Gulfstream Park on December 2 is the best way to get all of your questions answered and learn more about racing and ownership. Speak with industry professionals who can explain how to get licensed, learn about state breeding programs, ways to purchase a horse, partnerships, syndicates and enjoy a fun day at the track! #letsgoracing
