GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (Thursday, September 28, 2018) – The Lone Star Park Racing Club will present the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund with a donation of $11,9243.34 on Saturday, September 29.
The Lone Star Park Racing Club is a 501(c)(7) not for profit club that, for a minimal membership fee, provides insight into race horse ownership. The prodigious season experienced by the 2018 racing club made it possible to make this donation to the PDJF.
The check presentation will be in the winner’s circle after Saturday’s second race. On hand to accept the donation for the PDJF will be 10-time World Champion Jockey G. R. Carter, Jr. and former jockey and current Texas Racing Commission Steward Jerry Burgess. Carter has served on the PDJF board of directors since 2006.
