Sabertooth Sports & Entertainment (SS&E), a division of Predators Holdings, has partnered with Iroquois Steeplechase to offer Nashville Predators Partners, Premium Seat Holders, Season Ticket Citizens and all sports fans the exclusive opportunity to purchase individual, tailgating and VIP tickets for the 81st anniversary of the event – which will take place on Saturday, May 13, at Percy Warner Park in Franklin, Tennessee. A portion of the event’s proceeds will benefit the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt University.

“We are thrilled to partner with one of Nashville’s most historic and treasured events, the Iroquois Steeplechase, to bring together more than 25,000 people for a day of excitement and entertainment,” says Nashville Predators President & CEO Sean Henry. “For us, the event is much more than a race—it’s an opportunity to give back to the community. The Volunteer State Horsemen’s Foundation has been able to use Steeplechase as a vehicle to raise more than four million dollars for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt University over the years, and we are grateful for the opportunity to get involved and help drive even more fans to Steeplechase and support the Children’s Hospital.”

Iroquois Steeplechase was first contested in 1941 in a valley at Percy Warner Park on a course that was constructed by the Works Progress Administration. Volunteers consisted of local fox hunters, among others. Those volunteers later created the Volunteer State Horsemen’s Association (now Foundation), which today remains the governing body of the race meet, under the leadership of Steeplechase Chairman Dwight Hall.

Events will be held throughout the day for children and families, and awards will be presented for the most stylish dress for males and females, along with others. Cash bars and food trucks will be available on the property for guests to purchase food, liquor, beer and wine. Attendees may also bring their own food and drinks if desired while utilizing special tailgating spaces created for Iroquois Steeplechase.
