Meet the Thoroughbred Racehorse Owners and Trainers of the FHBPA
We’re Over 6,000 Members Strong!
Behind the scenes of Florida Thoroughbred racing is a vibrant, often unseen world known as the “backstretch.” It’s created by hundreds of independent businesses—both large and small. Through the labor-intensive, long-term and high-dollar financial investment required to get a young Thoroughbred ready for competition, horse owners and trainers create thousands of jobs that drive over $1 billion a year through Florida’s economy—from breeding and buying, to training and campaigning.
The Florida Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association represents the interests of over 6,000 Thoroughbred horse owners and trainers who do business in Florida. Some FHBPA members are based in Florida, others have vast operations throughout the globe. But during a race meet, Florida is home to all of us. The FHBPA works to foster and promote their relationships with tracks, community and government, while creating a better economic climate in which our horsemen can do business.
