What is Jockeys and Jeans?

A once a year fundraising event held at different racetracks throughout the country. This event was started by a group of retired riders, all for the benefit of their peers who have experienced catastrophic injuries. This will be the sixth annual event and the first time Santa Anita Park has hosted.

100% of proceeds from the entirety of the event will go to benefit the PDJF.

J & J has raised over $1 million for fallen riders with all proceeds benefiting the PDJF, a 501 c3, charity. The money raised aids 62 (current) fallen riders for rent payments, mortgages, etc. and is used to help them along in their everyday lives, now that they are permanently retired.

Jockeys & Jeans mission statement: “We are the lucky ones. We will never forget our brothers and sisters who were not.”
