Saddle up with LongRun, own a piece of history from this year’s Queen’s Plate
TORONTO, June 24 - Woodbine Entertainment Group, in partnership with LongRun Thoroughbred Retirement Society, will once again give horse racing aficionados a chance to take home a piece of history, courtesy of a unique fundraiser in conjunction with this Sunday’s Queen’s Plate, Canada’s most famous horse race.
Each of the starters in the 152nd edition of the Plate will wear customized saddlecloths that will be autographed by the jockey following the race and then auctioned exclusively on eBay. The auction will start June 27 in the late afternoon and will close at noon, July 5, with all proceeds going to LongRun Thoroughbred Retirement Society.
