Galloping Out, the Thoroughbred retirement program serving Chicago racetracks Arlington Park and Hawthorne Race Course, is holding its second annual pig roast fundraiser on Sunday, Sept. 16, at Arrowhead Farm in Long Grove, Ill.
In addition to food and drinks, there will be games, live music, raffles and a silent auction with a number of unique offerings. Among the many items included in the auction is a halter worn by 2015 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, along with a certificate of authenticity. The halter was kindly donated by Coolmore America's Ashford Stud in Versailles, Ky., where American Pharoah stands at stud.
Online bids can be made at http://www.32auctions.com/gallopingout.
