The Event is Invite Only, but this year Racing Fans will have an opportunity to come support this amazing event.

The Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund (PDJF) is a 501(c) (3) public charity that provides financial assistance to some 60 former jockeys who have suffered catastrophic on-track injuries. Since its founding in 2006, the fund has disbursed over $2.5 million to permanently disabled jockeys, most of whom have sustained paralysis or brain injuries.
