Jockeys’ Guild speaks out on insurance during Breeders’ Cup
While Lone Star carries a $100,000 policy per jockey, Breeders’ Cup Ltd. and the NTRA purchased a four-day policy to cover jockeys up to $500,000 on Breeders’ Cup day.
That decision was made without consulting the Guild and is further proof that jockeys are not properly protected in most states, according to the Guild statement.
