A fundraising auction for injured jockey Graham Lee has been organised and can be viewed here. The jockey was recently moved closer to home after sustaining neck and spinal injuries in a Newcastle fall earlier this month and undergoing surgery.

All of the money raised will be managed by the Injured Jockeys Fund (IJF) and go directly to the 47-year-old rider. Some of the lots include mornings on the gallops with trainers like Paul Nicholls, Karl Burke, Harry Derham, Donald McCain and Fergal O'Brien. In addition, there are also stud tours up for bid, as well as racecourse hospitality packages. There is also a chance to play a four-ball round of golf with retired champion jockey Sir AP McCoy.

A JustGiving page has also been established by Lee's daughter. It has raised more than £165,000, so far. A nomination in incoming stallion Paddington (GB) will be offered by Coolmore during the upcoming Tattersalls December Mare Sale, with all proceeds going to Lee.
