kmnrcard2KMN Racing to Sponsor PDJF Fundraiser

When our beloved Shared Belief passed, Kim and Kevin Nish of KMN Racing, LLC knew that there was only one person they would trust with memorializing one of his greatest moments.  They turned to their good friend, artist John Rowe and commissioned two paintings of Shared Belief’s win in the San Antonio Stakes where he beat California Chrome.  One of these paintings was given to friend and partner Jim Rome.  And from that painting, a set of canvas prints were made; with one print being given to each member of the Shared Team.  (Jerry Hollendorfer, the Todaros, Alex Solis II, Jason Litt, Mike Smith, Russell Baze, Armando Rodriguez & Steve Bourmas)

An extra four prints were made which are being signed by Jerry Hollendorfer, Mike Smith and Jim Rome and one print will be silently auctioned off at each of the tracks in California that Shared Belief won at with all monies raised to be donated to the Permanently Disabled Jockey’s Fund.

Dates are as Follows:

Del Mar: August 26, 2016

Los Alamitos: to coincide with the running of the Los Alamitos Derby

Golden Gate Fields:  October 23, 2016

John Rowe has also done other paintings for the Nishes, specifically one of Mizdirection winning her first Breeder’s Cup and two of Lutine Belle winning the Blue Norther with one going to jockey Alex Solis in honor of his 5,000th win.  Other equestrian works of his include the movie poster for the 2003 film, “The Young Black Stallion” as well as several notable book covers.
