Pictured are 2 old Thoroughbred plaque trophies, measuring approxamately 6¾" x 15½". Each consists of a plaque shaped like the state, 2 stars, and an engraved brass plate, engraved as indicated below, attached with screws. They are scuffed up a bit, but should clean up nicely.

About the TBK ~ Kentucky Thoroughbred Association, Inc. A group of Kentucky's finest horsemen formed the Association in 1983 with two primary goals. The first was to unite the industry by addressing long-term problems and representing the thoroughbred industry on a national and international basis. The second goal was to maintain the highest levels of racing, breeding and training standards in the Commonwealth. Kentucky Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders, Inc. The state's leading breeders founded the Thoroughbred Breeders of Kentucky, Inc. in 1961. TBK directed its efforts toward promoting and protecting the thoroughbred industry in Kentucky. Renamed in 1980, the organization has expanded to include owners and breeders. As the third largest industry and the number one tourist attraction in Kentucky, the health and welfare of the thoroughbred industry has a tremendous economic impact on the quality of life in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The Kentucky Thoroughbred Association and the Kentucky Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders endeavor to enhance, promote, protect and publicize the Kentucky Thoroughbred Industry.
These trophies are similar in design to some on display at the Museum of the Horse at the Kentucky Horse Park.
