Jockeys And Jeans Great American Stallion Season Sale Benefitting PDJF Set For Jan. 21-24

The Sixth Annual Jockeys and Jeans Great American Stallion Season Sale to Benefit The Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund has been scheduled for Jan. 21 through Jan. 24 on Starquine.com.

This is the only Stallion Season Auction that brings together Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse Stallions in one sale. This is a true opportunity to show the world that Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horse people will stand up for those who can no longer stand for themselves.

Since being founded in late 2014 by a group of former jockeys, Jockeys and Jeans has raised $1.9 million for jockeys who suffered career ending racing injuries. The racing community has proved to all in and outside racing that they care not only for the horses they race but the humans who ride them.

The auction begins on Friday, Jan. 21, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. and ends Monday, Jan. 24th at 5 p.m. on Starquine.com. A preview of the seasons will be available on Thursday, Jan. 20. All seasons sold, their buyers and their prices are private. If you wish to donate a season or seasons and sell them privately, they are very welcome.

All seasons are non-guaranteed and donors have the option of including a breed-back the following year if the buyer’s mare does not get in foal on first cover. All at Jockeys and Jeans are volunteers and every cent of the selling prices goes to the PDJF. The charity provides a monthly stipend of $1,000 to some 60 former jockeys who suffered catastrophic career ending injuries. At least 40 are either quadra or paraplegics.

Last year, for the first time, Jockeys and Jeans sought seasons to Quarter Horses. Chiefly through the help of Quarter Horse Racing Legend, G.R. Carter, Jockeys and Jeans sold some $35,000 in seasons. The tally from Thoroughbred breeders was only slightly more.

Jockeys and Jeans would like to thank each and every season donor as well as every season buyer. Jockeys and Jeans believe that, as they say in horse racing, “What goes around comes around,” and all here hope, pray and believe your investment will pay dividends.

“We are tickled to see that the racing industry is on the rebound from the pandemic years and the sport we all know and love is regaining its health,” said Jockeys and Jeans President, Barry Pearl. “Yes, there are challenges and yes there are changes, but the needs of our fallen brothers and sisters go on. Nearly all live on a fixed income and dealing with the increased cost of living means hard choices and sacrifices. Our season sale not only offers solid stallions at a reasonable cost, but more importantly, the opportunity to make a difference in those who gave a big part of their lives to horse racing.”
