More about the Iroquois Steeplechase and the Iroquois Alliance

The Iroquois Steeplechase has been Nashville’s rite of spring since 1941, attracting more than 25,000 spectators to watch the best horses and riders in the world race over hurdles on a three-mile turf track. Held the second Saturday of May each year at Percy Warner Park, the Iroquois Steeplechase is Music City’s annual celebration of time-honored traditions, Tennessee hospitality and Southern fashions.

Those who attend enjoy areas for families, well-appointed tents and individually organized tailgates where the emphasis is on race day pickings, larger-than-life hats, Honey Jack Juleps and crowd-pleasing recipes. More importantly, guests support a cause at the heart of the event: Since being designated as the official charity in 1981, the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt has received more than $10 million from Iroquois Steeplechase proceeds. For more information, go to

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 Nashville’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. Learn more about the organization, and how to join, at
