Golden Gate Fields will salute Lost in the Fog, the champion sprinter who lost his battle with cancer, on Sept. 30.
A special DVD, featuring each of Lost in the Fog's 11 career victories, will be given to fans attending Golden Gate Fields. Lost in the Fog, the most popular horse to come out of Northern California since Seabiscuit, was euthanized Sept. 17.
Golden Gate Fields will show highlights of Lost in the Fog's career throughout the day and also pay tribute to the colt's connections, owner Harry J. Aleo of San Francisco and trainer Greg Gilchrist.
Donations, in the name of Lost in the Fog may be made to the Glen Ellen Vocational Academy (GEVA), an equine retirement facility located in the Sonoma County town of Glen Ellen. GEVA provides a home for retired racehorses as well as for horses that are injured or simply in need of a home.
GEVA representatives will be at Golden Gate Fields to accept donations Sept. 30. Fans can also mail contributions to the following address: GEVA inc., Equine Retirement Foundation, P. O. Box 2101, Glen Ellen, CA 95442. For more information on GEVA, visit www.glenellenfarms.com/geva.
