Jane Heart Jockey Cap Jewelry Benefits Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund
Lexington, KY (October 30, 2015) Jane Heart LLC is pleased to announce the new Jockey Cap Collection that will benefit the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund. Created in 2006 by leaders in the horse racing industry, PDJF assists jockeys who have suffered on-track catastrophic injuries. PDJF is an independent public charity that has disbursed over $6.0 million dollars and currently supports 60 permanently disabled jockeys, most of whom have paralysis or traumatic brain injuries. Nancy Lasala, President of PDJF, is “grateful for the support of our many industry partners who are committed to the welfare of these men and women, and we welcome Jane Heart to help in this important cause. The PDJF is able to bring much needed financial assistance to a group of athletes who have given so much to the sport of horse racing.” A portion of the proceeds from each design sold will benefit PDJF.Jane commented “In reviewing my racehorse designs for Secretariat, Barbaro, and Man o’ War, it seemed a natural that a new design would be a jockey cap to highlight and recognize the greatness of the human athlete in this dynamic sport. My inspiration also came from spending some time at various Secretariat Foundation events over the past several years with Ron Turcotte, the renowned Hall of Fame jockey of Secretariat and the well known ambassador for PDJF. Ron’s tireless efforts to raise money for PDJF and his winning smile and kindness to all during his autograph session appearances is truly admirable. Being next to him and seeing the appreciation his fans, young and old alike, have for him and how he responds to their every comment and question is heartwarming. Ron truly has been an inspiration to me, and I look forward to help raise funds for PDJF.”
The Jockey Cap designs come in two different size sterling silver charms and one features goggles as an accent. Hand polished and finished after casting in the USA, these adorable charms can also come hand enameled in a variety of jockey silk colors in either solid color or two tone. Custom colors are available upon request. Pricing for the charms start at $65.00 and can also come as pendants, on bracelets, and as cuff links. Each piece comes with the Jane Heart logo stamp inside and arrives in a velvet pouch with a commemorative card for PDJF.
