giving back to move the community forward



The Iroquois Steeplechase is run by the nonprofit, 501c3 organization the Volunteer State Horseman's Foundation.

Since being designated as the official charity of our event in 1981, the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt has received more than $10 million from Iroquois Steeplechase proceeds. Your gift will not only make an impact in promoting the sport and tradition of steeplechasing, but it will also help support the children of Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. 

The Iroquois Steeplechase proceeds also benefit many local charities and provide opportunities to preserve community traditions and assets such as Percy Warner Park.
