Sign up today for the Sam Thompson Memorial Golf Tournament

Sign up today for the 8th annual Sam Thompson Memorial Golf Tournament, set for April 25 in Whittier, California.

The fundraiser tournament is held in the honor of the beloved jockey who died in 2008 but is remembered and honored in many ways throughout the industry. The funds from the tournament go to the Sam Thompson Memorial Foundation, which helps disabled jockeys. Last year's golf tournament raised approximately $25,000, according to the foundation.

The golf tournament will be held at Candlewood Country Club at 14000 Telegraph Rd. in Whittier. There is an 11 a.m. sign in and a noon shotgun start. There is a dinner at 5 p.m. that includes awards, a live and silent auction and a raffle.

It is $125 for both golfing and dinner, or $35 for just dinner.
