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.
