Golf tournament will benefit Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund


An annual golf tournament that this year will raise funds for the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund and two local Lexington charities has been scheduled for Oct. 13, the organizers announced on Friday.

The golf tournament, to be held on the Wildcat course at the University Club outside of Lexington, Ky., will benefit the PDJF, Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital, and the John Morris Foundation, which was established to fund a portion of the rehabilitation expenses of John Morris, the son of longtime racing industry executive Joe Morris. John Morris was paralyzed as the result of an accident in 2012.

Held since 2012, the tournament has raised $150,000 for charities. Entry fees are $150 for individuals and $600 for foursomes. For information, contact the National Thoroughbred Racing Association.
