TOBA: Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association

TOBA Membership

Founded in 1961, the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association is the most influential association in North America dedicated solely to promoting the interests of Thoroughbred owners and breeders.

TOBA's diverse membership spans the globe and includes owners and breeders at all stages and levels of involvement in the Thoroughbred industry, as well as countless state owners and breeders associations. Through our projects TOBA administers and manages the American Graded Stakes Committee and The Racing Game, it is influential as a voice in the American Horse Council, and supports the National Racing Compact. The creation of promotional projects such as Claiming Crown, America's Day at the Races, and our participation as a founding member of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, has allowed TOBA to become the most influential and active organization that represents owners and breeders. TOBA's value extends beyond racing: our Equine Health Committee's work with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and our support of the Performance Horse Registry make us a key resource for Thoroughbred owners and breeders in non-racing disciplines as well.

TOBA is a 501(c)(6) non-profit trade association based in Lexington, Kentucky.
