AUCTION OF RACING COLLECTIBLES TO BENEFIT SRF HORSES SET TO BEGIN JULY 12

NEPTUNE TWP, NJ – July 9, 2015 -- Shoes worn by See You At Peelers, honored as a divisional champion at two and three, are among the items that will be auctioned to benefit the horses in the care of the Standardbred Retirement Foundation.

More than 20 items of interest to fans of racing will be auctioned on eBay, starting July 12, 2015.

Suzanne D’Ambrose of Neptune, NJ, a volunteer with the SRF, will be conducting the 10-day auction for the second year.

All the proceeds are used to buy grooming supplies, fly spray, horse care items and special treats for the retirees at the Cream Ridge, NJ farm.

“It will be like Christmas in July for the SRF horses,” said D’Ambrose. “Thanks to horsemen and friends, I’ve been able to accumulate many treasures to auction, and 100 percent of what is raised will benefit the horses.”

See You At Peelers, who was the Two-Year-Old Filly Pacer of the Year in 2010 and the Three-Year-Old Filly Pacer of the Year in 2011, retired with 26 wins in 31 starts and $1.5 million in earnings.

“After her last race at Yonkers Raceway [in 2012], I asked trainer Jimmy Takter for two of her shoes, and he kindly donated them,” D’Ambrose explained. “Her shoes come with a certificate of authenticity.”

Among the items that will be auctioned are Hambletonian shirts and scarves. Autographed driving whips, which also have certificates of authenticity, will be included. The whips are signed by Hall of Famer John Campbell as well as Tony Alagna, Ron Burke, Casie Coleman, Jeff Gregory, and Brian Sears. One driving whip has four signatures on it: Cory Callahan, Nancy Johansson, Marcus Miller, and Scott Zeron.

Another special item is a 10 ½ x 13 ½ mounted photo of Niatross and driver-trainer Clint Galbraith, winning the 1980 James B. Dancer Memorial at Freehold Raceway.




“Many friends have donated the racing memorabilia for the benefit of the SRF horses,” said D’Ambrose. “In particular, I’d like to thank Standardbred Breeders & Owners Association of New Jersey Public Relations Director Carol Hodes, who had many items collected during nearly 40 years as a racing journalist and publicist.”

Starting on July 12, visit the eBay website and use “Advanced Search” to find seller “Jerseyhorselover” to view and bid on all the items.

Extra charges will be required for shipping to Canada or other countries.
