National Jockeys Trust. The tragic deaths of jockeys Caitlin Forrest, Carly-Mae Pye, Simone Montgomerie and Desiree Gill since August 2013 has been a stark reminder of the dangers of race riding. The National Jockeys’ Trust (NJT) is a public charitable trust established in 2004 for the purpose of providing funding and other benefits for the relief of the financial difficulties and needs of jockeys (including apprentice jockeys) and their families, especially where such needs arise through serious injury, illness or death of a jockey. Insurance benefits have improved significantly since 2009. But there’s still any number of riders from years gone by, and even from the present group, who seem to slip through the cracks when it comes to WorkCover and other insurance schemes and end up in truly necessitous circumstances. The National Jockeys’ Trust faces a real challenge in raising the funds that are required to provide meaningful assistance to an acceptable percentage of those who qualify under the NJT’s charter. The sponsorship of the Jockeys Breeches by Jayco (2006-2012), and LUCRF Super (2013-2015) contributions from the Australian Jockeys Association, jockeys supporting their own and the Australian Racing Industry and community provides this essential funding. 2014 commemorates the 10-Year Anniversary of the National Jockeys Trust during this time we have provided assistance to over 200 jockeys and the families of jockeys who have been killed, that assistance has now exceeded $2 million. DID YOU KNOW • There are 840 jockeys registered in Australia and here are some statistics that support the need for the NJT • In excess of 870 Australian jockeys have been killed in race falls since 1847 • Approximately 200 riders are injured each year on Australian racetracks • Combined with trackwork, we have nearly 500 falls annually. • 89% of jockeys will have a fall that requires medical assistance • 9% have fallen more than 20 times • Each year 40% of jockeys will have a fall that will prevent them from riding for an average of 5 weeks. • Approx 5% of these falls would be termed career-ending injuries. • Over 50% of Australian jockeys earn less than $60,000 per year (before expenses) • It is estimated that in the next 10 years we will see 10-12 jockey deaths and 50 jockeys will suffer career ending injuries including paraplegia, quadriplegia and severe brain injury.
