The Kentucky Racing Health and Welfare Fund is a charitable, non-profit organization that helps certain eligible individuals in the Kentucky thoroughbred racing industry who demonstrate need. It was founded in 1978 by an act of the Kentucky General Assembly, and provides benevolent funding toward the payment of medical, hospital, vision and funeral expenses. The Fund provides benefits for off-the-job injuries and illnesses which are not covered by union health and welfare plans, worker’s compensation, social security, public welfare, military benefits, veteran benefits or any other type of health, medical, dental or accident insurance.
