Iroquois Steeplechase Held on May 13th this year, at Percy Warner Park, the Iroquois Steeplechase is the premiere spring race in American steeplechasing and Music City’s traditional rite of spring – typically attracting more than 25,000 spectators. Since 1981, this illustrious event has benefited the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. There is nothing like the Iroquois. It’s the perfect combination of Southern gentility and sport with history and traditions that date back to 1941. This is one of Middle Tennessee’s top sporting and social events, attracting the best horses and riders in America as well as the crème de la crème of Southern Society. Improvements to the Iroquois Steeplechase grounds, paid for by the Volunteer State Horsemen’s foundation from race proceeds, provide year-round benefits and enhancements for the Equestrian Center at Percy Warner Park. Contributions to Friends of Warner Parks from race proceeds provide funding to help protect and preserve the Parks. For ticket and race information visit the Steeplechase website.
