Saratoga 150 Commemorative Scarf
To commemorate the Saratoga 150-year celebration, The Jockey Club Safety Net Foundation is selling a scarf depicting the recently unveiled Hoofprints Walk of Fame at Saratoga Race Course.
The scarf sells for $95, and proceeds from the sale of the scarf benefit the foundation, which provides financial relief to needy members of the Thoroughbred industry and their families.
“This scarf is a beautiful, distinctive tribute to Saratoga’s past 150 years and some of its best horses,” said Nancy Kelly, executive director, The Jockey Club Safety Net Foundation. “It’s an exceptional way to show your love of Saratoga while supporting Thoroughbred industry employees who are dealing with unfortunate circumstances.”
The silk scarf, created by Vineyard Vines, showcases the 30 horses and their connections displayed on the new Hoofprints Walk of Fame. The Walk of Fame runs along the clubhouse entrance gate and honors some of the most accomplished horses to have raced at Saratoga Race Course.
The horses, in alphabetical order, are Affirmed, Alydar, Beldame, Chief’s Crown, Discovery, Duke of Magenta, Easy Goer, Eight Thirty, Emperor of Norfolk, Equipoise, Exterminator, Go for Wand, Granville, Harry Bassett, Heavenly Prize, Henry of Navarre, Kelso, Kentucky, Lady’s Secret, Man o’ War, Native Dancer, Regret, Roamer, Ruthless, Secretariat, Sky Beauty, Tom Fool, Top Flight, War Admiral, and Whirlaway.
