Our Iroquois Steeplechase team and volunteers work year round to plan a day that highlights the best of Nashville culture, in addition to the premiere horse racing that takes place. Make these part of your Iroquois day experience:
Nashville Food Trucks
For those who didn’t bring their tailgating fare--or ate it too quickly!--we have plenty of mobile eatery options. We’ve re-located the food trucks inside the various tailgating areas to make things easier for you on race day.
Bring your wallet, because you don’t want to miss our special shopping areas! Patrons have the opportunity to shop for steeplechase styles on race day in our Iroquois Shoppes, a tented retail experience. Located in the Hospitality Village area and accessible from all areas, guests can browse a wide selection of goods--plus purchase 75th anniversary souvenirs!
Michael Stanley Stick Horse Race
A time-honored tradition at the Iroquois Steeplechase is watching the kids compete in the Michael Stanley Stick Horse Race to win a $100 gift card to Phillips Toy Mart. The parents of the winner will receive $100 to Maggiano's Little Italy. There are many families who have raised their children on the tradition of the Steeplechase! Signup is located at the 99.7 WTN Tent in the Family Area.
Family Area and Tailgating Section
The Family Area is a a fun and flexible area featuring children’s activities and close proximity to the track for viewing. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Family Area will offer FREE games and activities for kids 12 and under who are accompanied by a parent.
