Jockeys and Jeans will hold its third annual stallion season auction to benefit Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund at Fasig-Tipton’s Seattle Slew Room in Lexington, KY, Dec. 1. An online sale of seasons starts on www.Starquine.com on Friday, Nov. 24 at 10:00 a.m. and ends Thursday, Nov. 30 at 8:00 p.m. Hall of Fame riders Pat Day, Chris McCarron and Sandy Hawley, along with Triple Crown winner Steve Cauthen are scheduled to attend. Two previous Select Season Sales raised $260,000. This sale will also auction several pieces of racing’s most historical memorabilia.
“We realize there are many worthwhile charities in horse racing and we applaud every one,” said Jockeys and Jeans President Barry Pearl. “But PDJF is the only one dedicated to assisting the men and women who left much of their lives beneath the horses we know and love. Many of them went from riding racehorses to riding wheelchairs.” Those planning to attend please RSVP at https://www.jockeysandjeans.com/, or email or call the groups season sales director, Eddie Donnally at 818-653-3711: email email@example.com.
