Brian Elmore, the Executive Director of the Indiana Horsemen's Protective and Benevolent Association, has been named 2021 Jockeys and Jeans Man of the Year.
Elmore will receive the award at the seventh annual Jockeys and Jeans event at Monmouth Park Sept.11. Seventeen Hall of Fame Jockeys are scheduled to attend and honor seven of their fallen brothers and sisters.
Elmore has long advocated for jockeys. In 2016 he won the Eddie Arcaro Award, presented by the Jockeys' Guild to a person or group that consistently shows exceptional commitment to jockeys and the organization. Now the Indiana HPBA Executive Director, Elmore enlisted the group to donate $30,000 to PDJF over the last few years. He is also the only Jockeys and Jeans Ambassador, not an active or former jockey.
The event begins in Monmouth Park's Turf Club Sept. 11 at 11:30 a.m. Tickets cost $75. There will be silent auctions of racing-related memorabilia and autograph sessions throughout the course of the event.
