We have teamed up with JustGiving to enable racegoers and supporters to participate in what promises to be a very entertaining saga. Each rider will have their own microsite detailing their progress, their highs and lows, with feeds to their social media channels. Help them along the way to raise money for Irish Injured Jockeys by clicking on the JustGiving logo below.


Irish Injured Jockeys was set up in 2014 to increase awareness and raise vital funds to support injured jockeys. Led by Chairman Ruby Walsh, and leading riders including representatives of HRI and The Turf Club, Irish Injured Jockeys’ vision is to provide long-term care and guidance; not only when jockeys have suffered injury through race-riding, but when they will need help in their secondary careers and in their lives after they have finished riding.
