Jockey colony autograph signing on Friday to benefit PDJF

June 8, 2022

ELMONT, N.Y.—Members of the Belmont Park jockey colony will participate in an autograph signing on Friday to benefit the Permanently Disabled Jockey Fund (PDJF).

The special meet and greet and autograph session featuring riders from the Belmont jockey colony with a suggested donation to PDJF will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Friday on the first floor grandstand. 

Benefits from the signing will go directly to the PDJF.

The PDJF is an independent charitable organization that provides financial assistance to jockeys who have suffered catastrophic on-track injuries. The PDJF was created in 2006 as a collaborative effort of leaders representing race tracks, jockeys, horsemen’s groups, and others within the Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse industries. In 2009, the PDJF became a freestanding 501(c)(3) public charity governed by a board of directors comprised of stakeholders from a broad cross-section of the horse racing industry.
