Blankets of Ashford Champions Up for Charity Auction

Epicenter's blanket | CASA of Lexington

Coolmore America's Ashford has donated the blankets worn by three of the champions in their stallion barn–2015 and 2018 Triple Crown winners American Pharoah and Justify, as well as 2022 champion 3-year-old colt Epicenter–to CASA of Lexington's annual “Bourbon and the Bayou” silent auction. The blankets will be auctioned individually to support advocacy for abused and neglected children in the family court systems of seven Central Kentucky counties.

“There haven't been many opportunities ever before to acquire the actual blankets worn by celebrity Thoroughbreds,” said Melynda Jamison, CASA of Lexington's executive director. “We are excited to have these unique items in our auction! Whoever wins them will also be supporting brighter futures for abused children in the heart of horse country.”
