The TAKE2 Second Career Thoroughbred Program today announced the qualifying period for the TAKE2 Thoroughbred League's 2016 season, which will run *Sept. 29, 2015 through Oct. 2, 2016. The qualifying period will apply to TAKE2 Hunters and Jumpers.

The TAKE2 Thoroughbred League, a member-based initiative that rewards participating Hunters and Jumpers with the chance to win a total of $30,000 in year-end awards, was launched in 2015. The League attracted 165 members, representing 32 states, in its very first year.

“You expect new initiatives to take three years to get off the ground,” TAKE2 President Rick Violette Jr. said. “We were amazed at how quickly the TAKE2 League was embraced by the hunter-jumper community. The goal of the TAKE2 Program is to promote second careers for retired racehorses, and it is gratifying to see the growing enthusiasm for the Thoroughbred in the show ring.”

The prestigious Capital Challenge Horse Show will host the presentation of the TAKE2 Thoroughbred League's 2015 High-Score Hunter and Jumper Awards. The ceremony will be held Sept. 30, 2015 at the Prince George Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro, MD.
