In an effort to raise money for The Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund and the Race Track Chaplaincy of New York, the groups have organized a basketball game between members of the Saratoga jockey colony and New York horsemen.
The game will be held July 28 at 7 p.m. at the new Saratoga Southside Rec-Center, located at 15 Vanderbilt Ave., in Saratoga Springs. Admission is $15.
The horsemen, led by trainer and Eclipse Award-winner Todd Pletcher and leading owner Terry Finley, will face off against jockeys like Javier Castellano, Channing Hill, Robby Albarado, John Velazquez, and Kent Desormeaux.
Tax deductible donations may also be made to the NY Race Track Chaplaincy of America, Inc., P. O. Box 66, Elmont, NY 11003.
