Our Cause

For more than 70 years, the Iroquois Steeplechase has captivated thousands of spectators from near and far with its traditions, pageantry, and the energy of the sport. Those who have made this day at the races an annual family outing or an opportunity to entertain business associates know that no other event in Middle Tennessee can match the appeal of the Iroquois.

But there is much more to the event than the races themselves. At the heart of the Iroquois Steeplechase is a cause that brings together the celebration of the past with a renewed hope for the future: the children of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
