April 8, 2010 – ReRun Inc., the nonprofit Thoroughbred adoption program, announced it will be holding its spring eBay auction of Moneighs on April 25, 2010. The auction of 30 paintings created by famous equine artists will feature current superstar Zenyatta and her recently-retired stablemate, Life Is Sweet, as well as Kentucky Horse Park Hall of Champions Cigar, Funny Cide and DaHoss. The auction will also feature paintings by leading New York and Florida Stallions and a painting by the beloved champion Evening Attire.
The spring auction, which ends on May 2nd, will include several paintings created by famous horses of other breeds including one by Rolex W., who will compete in the combined driving event at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games this fall. Champion Standardbred Staying Together also created a painting even though he is blind. Each Moneigh is an original, abstract painting created by a horse, using the horse’s muzzle, whiskers, hoof, and tail. Some artists, such as Funny Cide and Cigar, will paint by holding a paintbrush in their mouths.
“The Moneighs continue to be popular with racing fans and they are critical to providing needed funds to support Thoroughbreds awaiting adoption in our program,” said Jane Gilbert, ReRun’s President. ReRun maintains chapters in New York, New Jersey, Kentucky, and North Carolina and is the onsite program for retired racehorses at Monmouth Park. More information regarding ReRun and the Moneighs can be found at www.rerun.org.
