The Japan Bloodhorse Breeding Association (Japanese: 日本軽種馬協会, or JBBA) is a public company established to manage the racehorse breeding industry in Japan.
It was founded in 1946 as the Thoroughbred Corporation Association, and was later renamed. The JBBA offers many programs to help small-time thoroughbred breeders around the country. The stallions that they offer are often subsidized so that every breeder has an opportunity to breed to top stallions.

- Financial aid for importing mares
- Financial aid to update breeding and training facilities
- Farm management support and training
- Operate the Japan Bloodstock Information System
- Organizing and marketing public sales of thoroughbred horses
- Educating people who want to work in the breeding industry
- Promoting racing through awards and sponsoring races
