Jockeys donate more than 80 toys for Shelby County kids at Horseshoe Indianapolis

Each year, the jockey colony at Horseshoe Indianapolis comes together for a great cause and brings in toys for less fortunate children in Shelby County.

This year, the jockeys brought in a total of 83 toys which will be delivered to Court Appointed State Advocates (CASA). The toys will then be dispersed to kids in the local community who will have a little brighter Christmas thanks to the efforts of more than 30 jockeys at Horseshoe Indianapolis.

“This is very special to all of us,” said Leading Jockey Joe Ramos, who brought in multiple bags for the cause. “A lot of us started off with very little at Christmas, so we know that feeling. We want to give back now that we are in a position to do so. We hope it brightens the day of many kids who might not otherwise have presents for Christmas.”

The toys range in age groups from toddlers to teens for both girls and boys. The jockeys picked out some of the hottest toys on the market to ensure all kids have a nice surprise during this holiday season.
