The R.A.C.E. Fund, a 501 C 3 non-profit organization established in 2004 and TAA accredited, will begin auctioning the private racing memorabilia of Christopher Hoff on eBay beginning Oct. 25.

“As a Thoroughbred racing photographer, I had the opportunity to witness the performance of such equine athletes as Alysheba, Sunday Silence, Personal Ensign, Private Terms and

many others,” Hoff said. “However, I also saw the fate of the 'discarded' horses who were deemed unprofitable for their owners. These beautiful horses are too often forgotten and I am thrilled that my collection of racing memorabilia can help provide a well-deserved pleasant retirement or help with the rescue of these wonderful animals.”

R.A.C.E. Fund President Marlene Murray said, “We cannot thank Mr. Hoff enough for donating such a vast collection of racing memorabilia to our organization to help the horses.”

The auction will be conducted in phases, with the first phase on eBay from Oct. 25 at 8 p.m. (EST) and ending Oct. 28 at 8 p.m.

Featured items include: Breeders' Cup Programs from 1984 to 1992 in mint condition; Breeders' Cup Racing Forms; signed pictures of trainers Carl Nafzger, Jack Van Berg, Sonny Hine, D. Wayne Lukas and jockey Laffit Pincay; Share The Glory and Fly So Free saddlecloths; and a 1987 framed Washington, D.C. International program signed by jockeys.

Subsequent phases and auction dates are yet to be determined. Updates can be found at www.racefund.org.
