Belmont Winner Memorabilia to be Auctioned for Charity
A shadow box commemorating 2013 Belmont Stakes winner Palace Malice is being offered on eBay through June 8. Sale of the shadow box will benefit Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation. The Palace Malice auction began on Sunday, June 1, and will end on Sunday, June 8, at 9 p.m. EST. Interested bidders can follow this link bit.ly/1pzHH39 or can visit eBay.
The shadow box includes a shoe worn by Palace Malice and a stretch run photo by Skip Dickstein of Palace Malice winning the Belmont in the famous Dogwood Stables racing colors. The names and racing colors of all the horses in the race surround the photo. Inside the shoe is a brass plate engraved with "Palace Malice Belmont 2013."
The box has been framed by Cross Gate Gallery in Lexington, Kentucky, with a linen fabric mat liner. The glass is protected with Tru Vue Conservation Grade 99% UV protection. The wooden shadow box is stained in dark brown with a lightly distressed look and trimmed in gold. The box measures approximately 20 inches long, 17.25 inches wide, and 2 inches deep.
This is the final shadow box to be auctioned of three in the Triple Crown series offered by Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation. A shadow box with Kentucky Derby winner Orb's shoe and photo sold for $1,250, and a similar box commemorating 2013 Preakness winner Oxbow sold for $1,100. "We appreciate the owners' donating memorabilia from such great events in their lives," said Ed Bowen, president of Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation. "They are not only benefiting equine research, but also sharing those special moments and memories."
