Launched in 2017, the Maryland Thoroughbred Career Program is an educational program presented by the Maryland Horse Foundation (MHF) that aims to:
- Increase awareness of the diverse career options in the Thoroughbred industry
- Give participants access to leaders of the Maryland Thoroughbred community
- Highlight various paths for pursuing a career in the Thoroughbred industry
- Address a critical need to attract and retain experienced and devoted employees
Over the course of a week, participants are encouraged to fully engage in the Maryland Thoroughbred industry and explore a multitude of career options. Graduates of the MTCP are eligible to apply for Career Development Funds, one-time funding that can be used to further career pursuits within two years after the program ends.
