Jockeys donate record number of toys

The jockey colony at Indiana Grand stepped up more so than usual during a difficult season by donating 61 toys, a new record for the annual toy drive. Last year, the jockeys collected 56 toys for “Breakfast with Santa” held by the Shelbyville Parks and Recreation. The event includes two sessions with breakfast catered by Denny’s, a visit with Santa, and now thanks to the jockeys, kids will go home with a toy. Jockeys included in the photo for the toy donation, from left, include Marcelino Pedroza Jr., Tommy Pompell, Fernando De La Cruz, DeShawn Parker, Geena Lucille, Kendall Sterritt, Angel Reyes, Emmanuel Esquivel, Chris Creel, clerk of scales, Alex Achard and Sammy Bermudez (kneeling).
