eBay: You Never Know What You Might Find...
Four shoes by British racing champion filly (and US Breeders Cup winner) OUIJA BOARD are up for auction for charity this week on eBay. So far, the bidding is up to just under $1000 with the latest bid from "Lady Tavistock"--who knows if it is the real Lady Tavistock or an imposter, but that is part of the fun of eBay!
Here's a link to the listing:
No mention of who the farrier is or the make of the shoes. Maybe someone will email me and tell me...
Ouija Board is still in training and seems to be circling the globe, racing in major stakes from Dubai to the Pacific Rim this year. The shoes were donated by the Countess of Derby.
