Beginning Friday, Sept. 25, with a donation of $200, fans can have their cut-out images appear in Santa Anita's Runhappy winner's circle. Friday is opening day of Santa Anita's 16-day Autumn Meeting. The personalized cut outs will be displayed throughout the meet, which concludes Oct. 25.
The donation will support California Retirement Management Account (CARMA), which provides funding for the rehabilitation, retraining, and retirement of California-based runners, and the Permanently Disable Jockeys Fund (PDJF), which provides financial assistance to jockeys who have been injured on the racetrack, with 100% of the donation going to the two organizations. Santa Anita will assist with the individual pictures within 48 hours of receiving the donation.
