•More than $63,000 raised for injured jockey Von Rosen, 4/22•
A pair of fundraisers at Turf Paradise to aid severely injured jockey Anne Von Rosen raised more than $63,000.
Von Rosen was pulling up her mount after a Quarter Horse race March 11 at the Phoenix track when the horse stumbled, tossed Von Rosen, and fell over her. Von Rosen was paralyzed from the waist down and has undergone several surgeries. She has returned to her native Germany to continue her recovery and physical therapy.
The Walk for Annie on April 12 allowed fans to walk 400 yards with members of the local riding colony and raised $2,200. An auction and dinner raised more than $61,000 on April 16. The auction included riding items from Bill Shoemaker and Red Pollard as well as memorabilia related to Horse of the Year Zenyatta, including unpublished pictures. A name-plated Zenyatta halter brought $3,500. Turf Paradise owner Jerry Simms contributed $10,000 to the cause.
“We are overwhelmed by the response from Anne’s extended family in the horse racing community,” track general manager Vince Francia said. “We hope the donations and thoughts and prayers of Anne’s many supporters will aid in her recovery.”
Anyone wishing to contribute is asked to contact Turf Paradise Horsemen’s Bookkeeper Bucky Huff ( Those wishing to donate directly can send a check made out to the Turf Paradise Foundation (mark memo line Anne Von Rosen) to the track at 1501 W. Bell Road, Phoenix, AZ 85023. All donations are tax deductible.
