The Jockey Club Releases Industry Initiatives Impact Report

The Jockey Club has traditionally shared information about the initiatives it supports at its annual Round Table Conference in August. Beginning in 2024, early each year The Jockey Club will publish an annual report about how it supports the Thoroughbred industry. The inaugural report is here: The Jockey Club 2024 Industry Impact Report. 
Since 2010, The Jockey Club has invested more than $100 million in the Thoroughbred industry. This year, it will invest at least $7 million to support initiatives ranging from equine safety and aftercare to industry promotion and national and international collaboration.  

“The initiatives supported by The Jockey Club, together with others or wholly backed by The Jockey Club, have increased substantially in the last decade and a half,” said James L. Gagliano, president and COO, The Jockey Club. “They reflect the commitment by the board of stewards to invest our profits into a wide array of projects and activities that may serve as catalysts for growth of the sport and for ensuring the safety and welfare of its participants.”  

As the Thoroughbred breed registry for the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, The Jockey Club Registry is a not-for-profit organization with the primary responsibility of maintaining The American Stud Book to ensure the integrity of the breed. 

In line with its mission of being dedicated to the improvement of Thoroughbred breeding and racing, The Jockey Club developed a group of for-profit subsidiaries and partnerships to further support the industry, its horses, and the people who work within it: The Jockey Club Information Systems (TJCIS), InCompass Solutions, Equibase Company, and The Jockey Club Technology Services (TJCTS). These companies serve the industry with technology services and products, and the profits they create are dispersed to The Jockey Club for investment back into the sport.
The Jockey Club, founded in 1894 and dedicated to the improvement of Thoroughbred breeding and racing, is the breed registry for North American Thoroughbreds. In fulfillment of its mission, The Jockey Club, directly or through subsidiaries, provides support and leadership on a wide range of important industry initiatives, and it serves the information and technology needs of owners, breeders, media, fans, and farms. It founded America’s Best Racing (, the broad-based fan development initiative for Thoroughbred racing, and in partnership with the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association, operates OwnerView (, the ownership resource.
