Utah Quarter Horse Association public meeting over Jockey Insurance issues

April 6, 2006     E-mail this page to a friend!

The Utah Quarter Horse Association Race Division would like your support and input. We are having a meeting WEDNESDAY, APRIL 12 at 7:00 p.m. at Laurel Brown Race Track, Racing Office to discuss all the issues involved with jockey insurance coverage.

As many of you are well aware Mather Insurance Company (Mather has insured UQHA Jockeys for the past 3 years) has raised their rates. Rates for 2006 are as follows: $2,055.00 per Race Day (under 10 races) with a $10,000 up-front deductible. The deductible is now $10,000 PER CLAIM!

We have applied for jockey insurance from other sources and have to date been denied coverage.

We are VERY OPEN to all options! Please come and attend this meeting. This meeting is for EVERYONE!! Please spread the word of this meeting to all Owners, Trainers, Jockeys etc.
