The safety and care of our athletes is top priority, and that extends to the jockeys and riders who dedicate their lives to the sport. At 1/ST, we work closely with The Jockeys’ Guild to support the implementation of critical safety and equipment protocols to protect jockeys and riders during their careers.
As we do with horse aftercare, we go beyond the racetrack to invest in meaningful programs for injured or retired jockeys and riders. In partnership with the Jockeys’ Guild and the After The Impact Fund, we at 1/ST invested in and developed the only, first-of-its-kind program to facilitate customized treatment for jockeys in conjunction with military veterans and retired pro athletes with unseen traumatic injuries from the field, including TBI, anxiety, depression, PTSD, transition, addiction and suicide prevention. This program was introduced as a pilot in 2017 and has made a profound impact on those who need it most.
1/ST is also proud to support the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund at our racetracks and premier events throughout the year.
