Hall of Fame Trainer Bob Baffert Lends His Hand for the Horses
Hall of Fame Trainer Bob Baffert and his wife Jill, have endorsed a collectible jersey to benefit the ex-race horses at Old Friends.
"Bob and I appreciate the work that Old Friends does with racing's old warriors", explained Jill Baffert when I asked why they had chosen to become involved with helping the horses. "We felt a connection with Old Friends because it's the home of Danthebluegrassman who Bob trained and he was named after our dear friend, Dan Chandler" Jill further explained "Ironically, Bonnie's Poker lives there also. She's the dam of Bob's first Derby winner and sentimental favorite, Silver Charm".
The jerseys feature the familiar Baffert barn colors, blue and yellow with a picture of Bob Baffert on the sleeve and a list of winners on the back of the jersey including War Emblem, Point Given, Vindication, Silverbulletday and many more. The jerseys are manufactured by MVP Champions. The wearable jerseys start at $ 90.00, with the collectible jerseys at $ 175.00
Bob Baffert will be at Santa Anita on April 3 from 12-1 p.m. to sign the jerseys for fans who purchase one. To see the work of Old Friends, go to www.oldfriendsequine.org
