Maryland Jockey Injury Compensation Fund


Board of Directors

In January 1986, the Maryland Jockey Injury Compensation Fund, Inc., was established as a nonprofit corporation (Chapter 757, Acts of 1985). The Fund secures workmen's compensation insurance coverage, on a blanket basis, for jockeys licensed by the Maryland Racing Commission to ride thoroughbred horses. The premiums are paid by an assessment levied on every licensed thoroughbred owner and trainer.

The Fund is managed by the members of the Racing Commission.
