The Jockey Club Renews Sponsorship for AEC, YEH, and FEH

By Claire Kelley - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce the renewed partnership with The Jockey Club as a Silver Level Sponsor of the 2020 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nutrena Feeds. The Jockey Club will award Thoroughbred Incentive Program (T.I.P.) prizes in all AEC divisions that include a cooler, ribbon, and prize money for every T.I.P. Champion and T.I.P. Reserve Champion. This year’s AEC will be held on August 25-30 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.

The Jockey Club will also join as a Contributing Level Sponsor of the USEA Young Event Horse Program (YEH) and USEA Future Event Horse Program (FEH). As a Contributing Level Sponsor, The Jockey Club will award a cooler, ribbon, and prize money to the overall T.I.P. Champion at each YEH and FEH Championships.

“T.I.P. is proud to sponsor the USEA American Eventing Championships because eventing is one of the greatest fits for off-track Thoroughbreds given how athletic and talented they are and many event riders are excellent ambassadors for Thoroughbreds,” said Kristin Werner, senior counsel for The Jockey Club and the administrator of T.I.P. “It’s an extra bonus that the USEA American Eventing Championships are being held in the same location as the T.I.P. Championships – the Kentucky Horse Park.”

Founded in 1894, The Jockey Club is the breed registry for Thoroughbred horses in North America. Since its formation, The Jockey Club has pursued its mission as an organization dedicated to the improvement of Thoroughbred breeding and racing. Over the years, The Jockey Club has earned widespread recognition as an industry leader for its active involvement in vital industry issues as well as its proficiency as a technology solutions and information provider. The Jockey Club’s T.I.P. program was developed to encourage the retraining of Thoroughbreds into other disciplines upon completion of careers in racing or breeding. It offers sponsorship for Thoroughbred-only classes and divisions, high point Thoroughbred awards at open horse shows and competitions, a Thoroughbred of the Year Award, and a Young Rider of the Year Award.

“At all levels of our sport, you will see many Thoroughbreds earn top placings as they make exceptional event horses,” said the USEA CEO Rob Burk. “The Jockey Club does a wonderful job at recognizing the athleticism of the Thoroughbred and they have supported U.S. Eventing for many years with T.I.P. awards. We are extremely grateful for their continued support.”

My Valentine Steals Hearts as the 2021 Pony of the Year

Sidnee Milner and My Valentine did not become partners out of sheer coincidence. The pony and rider combination that took home the 2021 SmartPak USEA Pony of the Year award were a product of the thoughtfulness and generosity of family friend and trainer Tawn Edwards. Milner was, at the time, a young and inexperienced child rider looking for a partner to teach her the ropes of eventing; My Valentine was a well-seasoned eventing pony who knew the job of advancing young riders well and was looking for her next partner. Over their three-year relationship, the duo have accumulated various ribbons and accolades together with 2021 being the most impressive of their seasons thus far.
