Our Mission

We are committed to long-term solutions that will enable us to protect and promote the Thoroughbred industry.  We strive to increase our influence on issues that impact our industry locally, nationally, and internationally.

Kentucky Thoroughbred Association

A group of Kentucky's finest horsemen formed the Kentucky Thoroughbred Association (KTA) in 1983 with two primary goals. The first was to unite the industry by addressing long-term problems and representing the Thoroughbred industry on a national basis. The second was to maintain the highest standards of racing, breeding and training in the Commonwealth.

Kentucky Thoroughbred Owners & Breeders

The state's leading breeders founded the Thoroughbred Breeders of Kentucky, Inc. in 1961. TBK focused on promoting and protecting the Thoroughbred industry in Kentucky. Renamed Kentucky Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders, Inc. (KTOB) in 1980, the organization expanded to include owners as well as breeders.
