Zippy Chippy Day!
Spend the morning with everyone’s favorite lovable loser Zippy Chippy and his BFF Red Down South. We will be auctioning a horse shoe with letter of authenticity from Zippy’s 85th race including a program from that race and photographs of Zippy with his owner and trainer Felix Monserrate. These items were donated by journalist Bill Flynn who will also be in attendance. A second auction will be for a Zippy halter with a brass name tag which Zippy will be wearing during the live auction. The winner will be photographed with Zippy and the halter at the end of the auction. These are priceless Zippy memorabilia treasures for any fan. First auction will begin at high noon.
Meet William Thomas, author of “The Legend of Zippy Chippy: Life Lessons from Horse Racing's Most Lovable Loser”. Mr. Thomas’s book can be purchased in our gift shop and he will be custom autographing books.Just for fun: Want to know more about Zippy Chippy? Look on Wikipedia!
