Delaware Park Family Fun Day to Support PDJF

Retired jockey Ramon Dominguez will attend the event, representing the PDJF.

Delaware Park, the Delaware Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association, and the Delaware Jockeys' Association are teaming up to support the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund through Family Fun Day from 12:30 to 3 p.m. EDT, Saturday, Aug. 22 in the picnic grove.

Activities will include pony rides, jockey autographs, and a country-style barbecue.  
   
"The Delaware Park family has a great appreciation for the jockeys' continued dedication and contribution," said Delaware Park executive director of racing John Mooney in a release. "These great athletes risk injury for spectators' enjoyment. The Delaware Park family has always been a proud supporter of the PDJF and we look forward to furthering our efforts to benefit this cause."
 
Retired rider Ramon Dominguez, the all-time Delaware Park jockey by wins, will be at the track during Family Fun Day as a special representative of the PDJF. 
 
In 2013, Delaware Park, the Delaware Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association, the Delaware Jockeys' Health & Welfare Fund, and the Delaware Arabian Alliance donated a combined $20,000 annually for a three-year period as part of the Ramon Dominguez retirement celebration.
