The Kentucky Equine Education Project (KEEP) announced Jan. 8 that it provided funding to 167 equine programs in 69 counties during 2006 totaling $135,682.
The Kentucky Breeder's Incentive Program, which is comprised of sales tax on stud fees and awarded its first check during Kentucky Derby week, is kicking into high gear to get more mares registered and is expanding its efforts to include non-race breeds.
The board of directors of the Kentucky Equine Education Project has opted to endorse an in-state Thoroughbred breed development program that could eventually offer awards to horses that race out of state or in other countries.
