Leg Up Fund

About the Leg Up Fund


Founded in 2014, the Leg Up Fund provides emergency transitional financial assistance to jockeys who have sustained on-track injuries, in the performance of their profession, at Canterbury Park. The long-term goal is to create a legacy that will enable the fund to sufficiently assist every jockey injured at Canterbury Park in the years ahead. Reaching that goal requires the continuous support of all who participate in, and are connected to, the sport of horse racing.

Leg Up Day is Sunday, May 27th at Canterbury Park! Join us at the track for a day of events and fundraising:

  • Bouncy Ball Races
  • Live Auction
  • Silent Auction
  • Raffle Drawing
  • Photo Opportunities


The Leg Up Fund Committee is looking for donations for the silent auction, as well as people interested in becoming a sponsor for the bouncy ball races! If you are interested, email info@mqhra.com for more information.


You can also sponsor a jockey for the day! Check out the form below to sponsor per start or make a one-time donation. This is a great option if you can’t make it to the track that day or know someone out of state that would like to sponsor a Canterbury jockey!
