Compassionate community partners like you are critical to our mission of improving the lives of those who need us.
— Dr. Jeffrey R. Balser, Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs, Vanderbilt University Medical Center

Without the generosity of our partners who support the Iroquois Steeplechase and our mission, we wouldn’t be able to produce a world‐class event that draws 25,000 people to watch the best horses and riders in the country.

With the help of our partners’ support, The Volunteer State Horsemen's Foundation has been able to donate more than $10 million from Iroquois Steeplechase proceeds to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt and
contribute to various other deserving organizations.

The TVV-Iroquois

Cheltenham Challenge

 
 

The Iroquois Steeplechase has partnered with the world famous Cheltenham Racecourse in England to announce a partnership and a $500,000 bonus challenge to any horse that can win both the the Sun Bets Stayers' Hurdle race at Cheltenham in March AND the Grade 1 Calvin Houghland Iroquois Hurdle Stakes in May (...or vice versa, within a 12‐month period).

As Irish-bred Rawnaq, winner of the Iroquois race in May 2016, was eliminated from the competition due to an injury, the Challenge will begin its second year with a new title sponsor -- local private equity firm TVV Capital -- the first leg of which will take place with the Sun Bets Stayers' Hurdle at Cheltenham on March 16. 

The TVV-Iroquois Cheltenham Challenge looks to reignite the cross‐Atlantic rivalry that has been a part of steeplechase racing through history, and this challenge is a significant one. 

TVV Capital is a Nashville-based private equity firm that acquires and grows businesses in the manufacturing, distribution and service industries across the Eastern United States. The hallmarks of TVV Capital companies are strong management teams, consistent profitability, a defensible market niche, and an identifiable growth path, either through organic, internal growth or through acquisition.
