Wellington, Fla. – April 16, 2019 – As the premiere international equestrian public relations and marketing firm, Phelps Media Group is pleased to announce the addition of the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation to its collection of high-profile equestrian clientele. Based in the heart of horse country in Lexington, Kentucky, the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation is a leading non-profit charitable organization dedicated to the advancement of all breeds of horses by funding cutting edge veterinary research at top universities worldwide.
|“The team at Phelps Media Group is excited for the opportunity to work with the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation and elevate its brand to the next level,” said Mason Phelps, president and founder of Phelps Media Group. “I am confident that this new partnership will increase its presence and continue to help provide all breeds of horses across all disciplines with the highest quality care.”
With an open membership for every horse lover, the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation does not have an alliance with any single university; therefore, the foundation can fund significant research projects regardless of where they are conducted.
Over the last four years, the foundation has provided more than one million dollars for projects that support the health and well-being of varying breeds of horses in the United States. Each project is extensively reviewed by its 32-person Research Advisory Committee. Significant advancements in equine health and services have been made possible thanks to the mission and countless contributions of the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation.
“Working with Phelps Media Group will enable Grayson to increase its reach in all areas of the equine industry, especially the sport horse industry,” said Dell Hancock, chairman of Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation. “At Grayson, we pride ourselves on supporting research that helps horses of all breeds and disciplines, and Phelps Media Group will greatly assist us in pursuit of this goal to educate stakeholders in the equine industry of the value of scientific research.”
With the help of Phelps Media Group, the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation aims to expand its influence into the sport horse markets by educating horse owners, riders, trainers and influential decision-makers on the value of its research programs.
Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation is traditionally the nation’s leading source of equine research funding. The projects it supports enhance the health and safety of horses of all breeds. Since 1983, the foundation has provided more than $27.5 million to fund 366 projects at 44 universities in North America and overseas.
