2012 Queen’s Plate Saddlecloth Recap!

2012 QUEEN’S PLATE SADDLECLOTH AUCTION RAISES OVER $4,100 FOR LONGRUN’S RETIRED RACEHORSES

Topped by a $1,000 bid for the saddlecloth sported by winner Strait of Dover, the eBay auction of saddlecloths worn by the fourteen 2012 Queen’s Plate participants raised over $4,100 to benefit LongRun Thoroughbred Retirement Society.  Woodbine Entertainment Group’s Jane Holmes and Steve Koch initiated this most successful annual fundraiser and the donation of  the saddlecloths to LongRun four years ago.

LongRun, a registered charity operating out of Woodbine’s backstretch, currently is fostering and retraining 45 retired thoroughbreds while they await loving, permanent homes.
