An eBay auction of racing memorabilia will begin Feb. 21 to raise money for a headstone marker for the grave of Our Mims, the 1977 Eclipse Award winner for 3-year-old fillies.
Our Mims was buried at the famed Calumet equine cemetery after her death last December. She had been sold at Calumet's dispersal sale in 1991, and was later taken in by the Thoroughbred rescue organization ReRun before being adopted by Jeanne Mirabito.
Photographers such as Barbara Livingston, John Bellucci, and Sue Rosenbach have donated images for the acution. In addition, a $2 win ticket from the Ruffian-Foolish Pleasure match race in 1975 will be auctioned.
