Created by Anita Motion, The Real Rider Cup has raised more than $225,000.

The Maryland Jockey Club will be represented Friday by host/analyst Kali Francois, marketing and events manager Brittlan Wall, and trainer Jacqueline Savoye.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be part of this amazing event and Team Maryland Jockey Club,” Wall said. “It is a great way to not only showcase the incredible versatility and talent of off-track Thoroughbreds, but it also shines a light on and raises money for Thoroughbred aftercare. It has been an honor to raise money over the last few months for this extremely worthwhile cause.”

Francois, who has ridden more than 600 races in her career, added; “I’m jazzed.  It will be the first time I’ve been in competition over fences since just under a decade. This is such an amazing event for off-track Thoroughbreds and it’s a wonderful way to raise money for these incredible organizations.”
