“The quality group of applicants from schools across the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern regions is a testament to how unique and valuable the Maryland Thoroughbred Career Program (MTCP) is,” said Jordyn Egan, Director of Development for the MHF. “What makes the MTCP different is the support from the entire Maryland horse industry and enthusiastic participation from its leaders. We are excited to welcome this new group to Maryland in June and watch their progress in the future.”

Previous Maryland Thoroughbred Career Program participants have gone on to other educational opportunities such as the Kentucky Equine Management Internship, an internship with 1/ST Racing and the Ed Brown Society, and the Maryland Horse Foundation’s Work Experience Program. Others are working in a variety of industry positions including sales administration, farm and broodmare management, communications, and higher education.

Graduates of the Maryland Thoroughbred Career Program are eligible for Career Development Funds, a one-time scholarship to support their post-MTCP career pursuits. To date, the Maryland Horse Foundation has paid out nearly $30,000 in Career Development Funds to cover a variety of expenses.
