Thoroughbred Ownership Seminar

This seminar provides a basic introduction to Thoroughbred ownership. Topics include how to build a racing stable, owner and trainer communications, common veterinary concerns, accounting and insurance issues, understanding racing partnerships and much more.

Two Thoroughbred Ownership Seminar videos are available for purchase:

Pedigree and Conformation Clinic

This clinic allows participants a deeper understanding of the Thoroughbred pedigree and conformation. Pedigree discussions include general theory, such as in-breeding, out-crossing and nicking as well as overall conformational factors. Pedigree theories differ greatly, therefore it is important to be familiar with many perspectives. Conformation discussions include the identification of common conformation faults and the effects of those faults as well as a live conformation workshop. Like pedigree theory, there are varying opinions within the industry about acceptable conformation faults so it is important to consider varying perspectives. The two-day clinic includes farm tours.

Breeding Clinic

The Breeding Clinic is held in Lexington each year and consists of tours at three Kentucky Thoroughbred farms. Clinic topics include foal registration, pedigree theory, a conformation workshop, equine nutrition, equine business matters, foaling and farm management as related to Thoroughbred breeding.

All seminars and clinics are sponsored by The Blood-Horse. Our programs are held at various locations each year throughout North America.
