Amateur Racing

amateur1In Support of Amateur Racing.

When the NSF was incorporated in 1995, it was and still is dedicated to fostering national and international amateur sports competition in the field of steeplechase racing.

Your continued support will help the NSF develop incentives along with opportunities and skills training for amateurs. Because the amateurs of today are the professional trainers and jockeys of tomorrow who will, ultimately, make a day at the races still possible for owners and the thousands of spectators alike.

As funders of the NSF, you help support the development of amateur athletes with the hope that they will be part of the efforts needed to take American jump racing farther into the 21st century and beyond.

Each year, the NSF allocates funds that it raises through your donations for purse supplements in races held at My Lady’s Manor, Grand National, Winterthur and Willowdale.
