Grayson-Jockey Club to Provide Research Funding in 2014

The Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation’s board of directors announced Feb. 27 that the foundation will fund a slate of 19 research projects worth $1,003,580 in 2014. The list includes 11 new projects and five that are in their second year, as well as three Storm Cat Career Development Awards.

The 2014 allocation brings the foundation’s total impact since 1983 to $20.9 million in funding for 310 projects at 41 universities.

“The overwhelming generosity of members, donors, and those who support our fundraising events has enabled us to allot $1 million in research this year that will once again benefit horses of all breeds and disciplines,” said chairman Dell Hancock. “Providing funding of more than $20 million for 310 research projects in a 30-year period certainly confirms the deep commitment of our board and supporters to equine health.”
