The fifth annual Jockeys and Jeans Stallion Season sale has attracted a host of new and popular stallions, led by Eclipse Award-winning Champion Sprinter Runhappy. The season was donated by his famous Houston owner Jim “Mattress Mac” McIngvale, a major donor to the PDJF. Other popular stallions include Tonalist, Point of Entry, World of Trouble, Mucho Macho Man, Alternation, Army Mule, Oxbow, Upstart, American Freedom, Tapiture, and Adios Charlie and First Dude, the two leading Florida stallions in 2019 by money won. The list of over 50 stallions include those standing in Kentucky, Florida, New York, California and Pennsylvania.
A preview of the seasons is available on Tuesday, Jan. 28 at Starquine.com. The sale starts Wednesday, Jan. 29 at 9:00 a.m. EST and ends Friday Jan. 31 at 6:00 p.m. EST.
“Believe me, we understand that breeding farms are deluged with requests for season donations from a wide variety of charities and state breeding programs,” said Jockeys and Jeans President, Barry Pearl. “But ours is the only online sale we know of that the proceed goes solely to human beings, namely those 60 former jockeys who suffered catastrophic, career ending injuries and are supported by a $1,000 monthly stipend by the PDJF. For some it means paying the electric bill and making the rent.”
