Artist in Residence: Mine That Bird Creates Moneighs to Help Fellow Thoroughbreds

Mine That Bird does his part to help retired Thoroughbreds by painting Moneighs for ReRun

Like many retirees, Mine That Bird has plenty of extra time on his hands – or should we say hooves.

The 2009 Kentucky Derby champ, who has been spending the past few months as the Kentucky Derby Museum's ‘racehorse in residence', recently discovered his artistic ability when he created a few ‘Moneighs' to benefit ReRun, Inc. With the help of Mary Simons, coordinator of the Moneigh paintings, Mine That Bird spent some time creating five pieces of artwork that will benefit the organization, which helps re-train retired racehorses for other careers.

Mine That Bird's artwork will soon be up for auction on eBay.
