The TAA-accredited R.A.C.E. Fund begins its 2021 fund drive with an online auction hosted on eBay beginning May 7 at 8 p.m. ET and ending May 14 to help raise funds for racehorse retirement and rescue.

Among the items available are halters of California Chrome, Funny Cide, Mohaymen, Serena's Song, Havre de Grace, Union Rags, Frosted and Littleprincessemma, the dam of Triple Crown winner American Pharoah.

Other items up for auction is a farm tour donated by Three Chimneys and horseshoes from Afleet Alex and First Samurai.

“We have some very exciting auction items again this year,” said Marlene Murray, president of the R.A.C.E. Fund. “We would like to especially thank volunteer Roxanne Campbell for her tireless efforts as well as Claiborne, Darley-Godolphin, Denali Stud, Gainesway, Kentucky Horse Park, Lane's End, Shadwell, Summer Wind Farm, Three Chimneys and Timber Town Stables for their generous support by donating such valuable items of racing champions to help us raise funds.”

All proceeds raised will be used to help Thoroughbred racehorses in need of retirement and rescue from slaughter. For more information on the R.A.C.E. Fund, click here.
