Leave a legacy that will make a difference

Have you ever considered what legacy you would like to leave behind? By making a bequest to the National Jockeys Trust, you can support Australian jockeys and their families in need.

In recent years, the National Jockeys Trust has provided up to $700,000 in financial assistance to those in fictitious circumstances. The demand for this support has grown significantly over the last decade. Since its inception in 2004, the NJT has distributed over $6.0 million in financial assistance to over 430 jockeys and their families.

Your legacy could make a world of difference to these brave athletes, and we hope you'll help us support these courageous men and women who put their lives on the line every day.

Please consult your legal adviser regarding the terms of your legacy and consider supporting the National Jockeys Trust.

The National Jockeys Trust would like to acknowledge John & Denise Cobcroft’s generous donation of $400,000 in 2017.

The bequest from the Breeding Estate of Denise Cobcroft was the largest donation ever received by the National Jockeys Trust. Denise Cobcroft was known as a charismatic, warm-hearted woman with an abiding love of animals.

She met her husband John and soul mate of four decades at the 1966 Singleton Horseshow. John was an outstanding horseman, playing polo for Australia alongside their brother Brian who represented Australia in the Olympic Games, and they loved their life on the horse and cattle property Parraweena. Denise Cobcroft passed away in 2010, five years after her husband, John, in 2005.
The Cobcroft racing story begins with the success of Caranna (1955 AJC Derby, Rosehill Guineas, Cauleld Guineas etc.), raced by John’s father. The Cobcrofts raced and bred many stakes winners, including Salaam, Big Circle, Hot as Hell, Flaming Hot, Pekalan, Momentaire, and Key Issue. Stakes success continued under the Breeding Trust of Denise Cobcroft with Master Harry, Under the Louvre, In Her Time and Alart.

We want to thank the Trustees of the Breeding Estate of Denise Cobcroft for their efforts.
