The Delaware Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement of Thoroughbred racing in Delaware.
The DTHA, which represents horsemen at Delaware Park, has an 11-member board: Five owners who aren’t licensed as trainers, five trainers or owner-trainers, and one representative who can be either an owner or trainer. Directors are elected by the membership every three years.
The president is elected by the general membership, while other officers are elected by the board of directors at its first meeting after an election.
The DTHA oversees the Delaware Horsemen’s Assistance Fund, which provides aid and assistance to grooms, hotwalkers, exercise riders, trainers, and other backstretch licensees; and the Delaware Thoroughbred Certified Program, which provides purse bonuses at Delaware Park to top-three finishers who were boarded at a Delaware farm for at least 90 days prior to March 31 of their 2-year-old season.
