Horse lovers need auction items for benefit

After the Finish Line will hosts its annual fundraiser “A Tribute to the Majesty of Thoroughbreds” from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Aug. 5 at the Del Mar Hilton. There will be a reception, silent and live auctions and dinner. Donations are needed for auction items at www.afterthefinishline.org.

An example of how ATFL’s funds are used comes from a recent award to Neigh Savers, who rescued Materazzi, a 4-year-old gelding, directly from Golden Gate Fields. He also raced at Santa Rosa Fair, Del Mar and the Big Fresno Fair. Running with bone chips left Materazzi with a grim prognosis unless he has surgery. After the Finish Line will award $1,000 toward his surgery expenses to give him the chance to be a western/English pleasure riding horse.
