Lone Star: Jockey dunk tank, photo board


The Lone Star Park riding colony is putting on a couple of fundraisers ontrack this afternoon to benefit the Don MacBeth Memorial Fund. The jockeys will take turns sitting in a dunk tank that is located near the paddock area. The times particular riders will be appearing is posted near the tank. It is $1 for a ball, or $5 for three balls. 

Also near the paddock, there is a large photo board featuring a jockey riding a racehorse. It is an engaging piece of art that was painted by Lone Star-based trainer Marvin Hayes. A 4X6 photo with one's face appearing where the jockeys' face would be costs $5.
