River Downs: Cooksey to appear at fund-raiser


Patti Cooksey, the second-leading all-time female jockey, will be the guest of honor this Saturday when River Downs holds "Ladies Day," a fund-raiser for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, which provides support to victims of breast cancer and their families. Cooksey, who retired from riding in 2004, is a breast cancer survivor.

The day will focus on relaxation, health, and wellness events, include free massages, makeovers, and readings by the motivational speaker known as the Angel Lady. There will also be a handicapping class, free goodie bags, and ladies drink specials, along with a hat contest and a silent auction.
