The Florida Thoroughbred Breeders’ & Owners’ Association (FTBOA) state incentive program fosters the agricultural activity of breeding and training Thoroughbred racehorses in Florida. The FTBOA is a not-for-profit association which represents more than 1,400 breeders and owners who breed, raise, train and race Thoroughbred horses born in the State of Florida. Since the Association's first organized meeting with 11 members in 1945, the FTBOA has grown significantly through the years. The FTBOA administers the lucrative state breeders' incentive program which encourages individuals to participate in the industry in the Sunshine State. Florida’s Thoroughbred farms and training complexes have produced 47 National Champions, 6 Kentucky Derby winners, 7 Preakness Stakes winners, 6 Belmont Stakes winners, 27 Breeders’ Cup champions and 6 Horses of the Year.
The program consists of breeders’ awards, owner awards, state-bred racing events including the Florida Million, Sunshine Millions and the Florida Cup and the lucrative $2.5 Million Florida Sire Stakes Program.
