Update From Michael..
If you're in Saratoga this week, be sure to drop by Anne's Washington  Inn on Thursday evening (August 11) for our annual cocktail party get together. 

The fun starts at 6 pm and, we'll be giving this year's Frankel Award to Eclipse-Award-winning photographer Barbara Livingston.  (Thanks again to Innkeeper Joe Bokan, one of our dearest and most generous supporters. We could never spend as much time having fun and raising money at the Spa without Joe letting us stay for free.)
On Tuesday August 16, the National Racing Museum and Hall of Fame is celebrating Old Friends Day. JoAnn Pepper, who manages Old Friends at Cabin Creek: The Bobby Frankel Division, and I will be there for the Guests in the Gallery program, which begins at 11 a.m. The program is free to attend with a paid Museum admission. We're expecting some very special guests, including H. James Bond (who trained Behrens, Will's Way), Richard Schlosberg (Affirmed Success), Jack Knowlton (Saratoga Episode), and Tracy and Carol Farmer (Commentator).

At both events, you will also have an opportunity to reserve one of the limited-edition Breeders' Cup- Maker's Mark commemorative Zenyatta bottles. Old Friends is the 2016 beneficiary of their "Champions for Charity" campaign and Breeder's Cup and Maker's Mark have created a gorgeous collectible that will be signed by Jerry and Ann, John Shirreffs and Mike Smith. We are please to say that 100% of the proceeds from this campaign will come to Old Friends. 

If you're not in Saratoga and you'd still like to reserve one of these commemorative bottles visit the website  https://www.breederscup.com/champions-for-charity?force-web 
Donors will be collecting their bottles at Arcadia Night: Salute to Zenyatta, which will take place on Wednesday, November 2 at the Gold Line Plaza, in Arcadia, CA., and also at the Breeders' Cup offices in Lexington on November 16. from 11 p.m. - 7 p.m. Proxy's will be accepted at both locations. 

But wherever you are, Breeders' Cup has vowed to get your collectible to you. Breeders' Cup will correspond with donors in October to determine their pick-up preferences and other possible options.
