Nearly a dozen "Moneighs," original paintings created by famous racehorses, have been listed by ReRun, Inc. on eBay during the week preceeding the 2005 Kentucky Derby. ReRun, Inc., the registered non-profit 501(c)3, is hopeful that racing fans across the country will support its Moneigh program which helps raise money for ex-racehorses seeking placement into new adoptive homes once their racing careers have ended.
These original paintings created by famous racehorses including: Castledale, El Prado, King Mambo, Louis Quatorze, Mineshaft, Southern Image, Wimbledon and others can be viewed on eBay throughout Derby- week, with the auctions ending Monday evening, May 9th, 2005.
"Moneighs" are trademarked by ReRun, Inc. and are created by the mouth, nose, hooves and tails of famous racehorses using non-toxic watercolors. Each painting is matted and framed with a customized brass name plate. Additionally, winning bidders will receive a photo featuring their one-of-a-kind Moneigh next to the racehorse that created it.
Stallion farms, owners and trainers across the country have joined forces with ReRun, Inc. hoping to raise awareness for Thoroughbred adoption.
"Our Moneigh program allows those more fortunate, famous racehorses the opportunity to support their less fortunate friends," said ReRun, Inc. Executive Director, Laurie Condurso-Lane. "We’re so lucky to have the support of so many in the industry and grateful to those that have supported us along the way."
