Jockey Rosie Napravnik will be signing autographs at Saratoga Race Course on Thursday, July 31, to benefit the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation's "Olivia's Herd." Napravnik will appear at the NYRA Charity Booth, located near the Jockeys' Room, from 11:30 to noon to sign autographs.

 

The fifth race on the Saratoga card that day will be named the "Olivia's Herd" in honor of Olivia Saylor, the late daughter of racehorse owner and breeder Paul Saylor. Saylor is a regular contributor to the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation. He created the "Olivia's Herd" Fund in 2011 in Olivia's memory to provide for the horses in the TRF program which are most in need of special care or feeding because of age or other physical condition.

 

"Caring for animals was Olivia's passion," said Paul Saylor. "This day at the races will bring awareness to the mission of 'Olivia's Herd' and the work of the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation. I am thrilled that Rosie will be there to raise the profile of the cause and attract young people to the track and to the mission of 'Olivia's Herd'."

 

The TRF will be giving away commemorative gifts to anyone who comes and signs up for information about "Olivia's Herd" at the NYRA Charity Booth from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Friday.
