Each discipline will have a restricted and open division consisting of Jockey Club registered/tattooed off-track Thoroughbreds. Any unraced Thoroughbreds, if not tattooed, are allowed to compete as long as they are identifiable through marking description from legible Jockey Club registration papers.

Registered participants will compete for money, ribbons, and prizes. According to Run for the Ribbons, the organizer of the event, the prize money minimum for this year’s expo is $9,000.

The deadline to register for the upcoming expo is October 31.
