Auction on backstretch workers' behalf on card tomorrow in Mount Washington


The Maryland Horsemen's Assistance Fund, which benefits backstretch workers at the state's thoroughbred tracks, will conduct its spring fund-raiser tomorrow at Mt. Washington Tavern.

Racing memorabilia will be offered in a live auction at 7 p.m., as well as during a silent auction throughout the evening.

Live-auction items include an autographed, framed photo of Lance Armstrong, bronze statuettes and a date with personable jockey Ryan Fogelsonger.

Guest bartenders will include jockey Steve "Cowboy" Hamilton and trainer Janice Nini. One hundred Hamilton bobbleheads will be on sale for $20 apiece.

The Maryland Horsemen's Assistance Fund aids stable and farm workers with low incomes. Proceeds from the fund-raiser will be directed to workers dealing with the hardships of cancer.

The tavern is at 5700 Newbury St. in Mount Washington.
