All horses must be saddled in barn prior to going to Paddock area. Before each race, announcements will be made in the barn with the time horses are to be saddled and ready to leave the barn to proceed to the Paddock. All horses for each race will proceed to the Paddock at the same time in numerical order.
All participating horsemen must pick up Iroquois credentials from the Race Office upon entering the Iroquois Steeplechase grounds.
NSA hang-tag accesses the stable area only. The NSA pin will not allow access to the OTR Hospitality Tent.
Due to limited space for infield parking, participating owners will be issued one infield parking pass. All other owners, trainers and riders will park in the stable area and will be shuttled to the infield. If you have to leave quickly after the races, please park at the barn to avoid traffic.
A shuttle will be provided exclusively for riders and trainers to access the scales and jockey tent from the stable area. Participating trainers and riders will be issued a Special Access vehicle pass upon request for transporting tack and other equipment.
Food for Horsemen:
A hospitality grill truck is onsite in the stable area where all participating horsemen with credentials may receive complimentary meals. Check in at race office. All participating horsemen must pick up Iroquois credentials from the Race Office upon entering the grounds. Iroquois credentials ONLY (not NSA pins) allow access to the OTR Hospitality Tent. You will not be allowed in the tent without Iroquois credentials.
All participating owners, trainers, riders and NSA Patron members will receive two wristbands to have lunch in the OTR Hospitality Tent. Participating owners, trainers and riders may purchase wristbands that exceed the two provided. Non-participating owners, trainers and riders who are NSA members may purchase wristbands to be allowed access to the OTR Hospitality Tent. Wristbands for the OTR Hospitality Tent are $50.00. Cash or check only please–we do not accept credit cards. Please contact the Race Office [(615) 373-5805; Fax (615) 371-6711; firstname.lastname@example.org] in advance if you wish to purchase tickets so that the proper number may be ready upon arrival.
