|Pat Day Bronze to Raise Money for Lone
Star Park Charitable Foundation Through eBay Auction
edition replica bronze statue of legendary Hall of Fame jockey Pat Day
is currently being auctioned on eBay.com to raise money for the Lone Star
Park Charitable Foundation for Grand Prairie. The online auction will
conclude Thursday, November 8 at 12:15 p.m. CT.
All proceeds from the auction will benefit The Lone Star Park Charitable
Foundation for Grand Prairie - a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that
has awarded more than $370,000 in total gifts to Grand Prairie, Texas
charities since its formation in 2001.
The bronze, designed by Raymond Graf and commissioned by Churchill Downs
after Day retired in 2005, is No. 8 of 15 and comes with a signed letter
of authenticity from Day and the artist. Graf's bronze, which stands 16
inches tall, captures the unforgettable image of Day raising his eyes
and hands toward the sky as he gave thanks to God following his victory
in the 1992 Kentucky Derby aboard W.C. Partee's Lil E. Tee.
The bronze is a replica of the life-sized statue situated in the Paddock
Gardens at Churchill Downs.
Day, a four-time Eclipse Award winner as North America's Champion Jockey,
