The 15th annual jockeys-versus-horsemen charity basketball game, which benefits the programs of the New York Race Track Chaplaincy, this year in partnership with the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund, will be played Aug. 1 at the Saratoga Springs Recreation Center beginnning at 7 p.m.

The jockey team will once again be coached by Hall of Fame jockey Angel Cordero, Jr., with trainer Todd Pletcher and agent Kiaran McLaughlin coaching the horsemen team. Mitch Levites of the NYRA TV department will once again serve as the game’s announcer.

“This annual game is one of the most unique and entertaining events on the Saratoga social calendar and we are always grateful to the players and the sponsors who participate and the hundreds of fans who attend each year,” said Humberto Chavez, the New York Race Track Chaplaincy lead chaplain and executive director. “Besides all the fun we have, the event helps the chaplaincy provide critical support for the chaplaincy’s various programs serving the backstretch community.”
