Iroquois Steeplechase: May 14, 2016

Posted on: April 27th, 2016 by grandave No Comments

The Irouquis Steeplechase 75th Anniversary.

The first steeplechase is said to have been the result of a wager in 1752 between Cornelius O’Callaghan and Edmund Blake, racing four miles cross-country from Buttevant Church to St. Leger Church in Doneraile, in Cork, Ireland.

A timeless tradition — Nashville’s steeplechase is born of this same resiliency and deeply rooted history.

The Iroquois Steeplechase has run continuously since 1941, taking only one year off during World War II. Even under threatening weather conditions such as the Nashville Flood of 2010, the race has continued on.

The race goes on because we love it. Most of all, we at Grand Avenue love its style.
