The Iroquois Alliance was formed in 2010 as a means for patrons to assist the Volunteer State Horsemen's Foundation in the continued promotion of steeplechase racing and Nashvilleโ€™s most iconic spring event, while helping support and raise money for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. Those interested in becoming part of a respected Nashville society and tradition can join at membership levels that range from $25/year and scale to a lifetime membership of $1,500.
