Iroquois Steeplechase Nashville 2017
May 13, 2017 – Tickets
A little History:
The Iroquois Steeplechase has been Nashville’s rite of spring since 1941, a time‐honored tradition of Middle Tennesseans for seven decades. Its rich history dates back to the pasture races in Middle Tennessee during the 1930s, creating a legacy that resonates within the Nashville community today.
Today, the Iroquois Steeplechase‐‐run by the nonprofit, 501c3 organization the Volunteer State Horsemen’s Foundation‐‐routinely attracts more than 25,000 to the Equestrian Center at Percy Warner Park in Nashville to watch the best horses and riders in the world.
The Iroquois Steeplechase is run by the nonprofit, 501c3 organization the Volunteer State Horsemen’s Foundation who manages and produces a world-class event and promotes the sport and the spirit of steeplechasing throughout the community.
Through the Iroquois Steeplechase, the foundation supports several local organizations by way of proceeds. Since being designated as a primary beneficiary, the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt has received more than $10 million from The Volunteer State Horsemen’s Foundation. In addition, our organization supports Friends of Warner Parks and other deserving nonprofits and charities.
