Illinois Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners The Illinois Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Foundation is a Not-For-Profit service corporation, representing Illinois breeders and owners and dedicated to the growth and development of the Illinois state-bred incentive program for Thoroughbreds. The foundation was influential in the drafting and passage of the Illinois Horse Racing Act of 1975, which ultimately resulted in the Illinois Thoroughbred Breeders Fund Program. Since that time the I.T.B.O.F. has been involved in legislation which legalized Inter-Track Wagering, Off-Track Betting and Simulcasting. The I.T.B.O.F. was active in defeating land-based casino gambling and is working to insure that purse accounts and breeders funds will benefit, rather than suffer, from any further proliferation of gaming in the state. The I.T.B.O.F. was represented on the Governor's Task Force, which drafted and passed the racing legislation of 1995. With the assistance of the Governor's office and our legislators, the state-bred program in Illinois will continue to rank among the most lucrative in the nation, offering over $20 million annually in purses and awards to Illinois Registered Thoroughbreds.
