October 2018 marks the 30th anniversary of the Maryland Horse Industry Foundation. We have a lot to celebrate, so we decided to kick off the party a few months early and keep it going all year! Being a nonprofit - by party, we mean fundraising campaign. Between now (July 2018) and Oct. 2019, we plan to raise an extra $30,000 to support our growing menu of educational programs.

As foaling season produces a new and promising generation of racing stock, the Maryland Horse Industry Foundation hopes to launch a new generation of its own: college students interested in finding careers within the Thoroughbred industry. Since the successful launch of the program last June, organizers spent the beginning of 2018 accepting applications and preparing for the second running of the Maryland Thoroughbred Career Program, which will run from June 4-9, this year. While MHIF prepares for the new class, those who participated in the inaugural running continue to make headway, while taking what they learned from the Maryland industry with them each step of the way.
