Thomas Allen Pauly - The Fine Art of Racing

Since 1978, award-winning equine artist Thomas Allen Pauly has portrayed some of the finest horses and jockeys in the country. Born and raised in Chicago, his love of the sport emerged in the Sportsman's Park's winner circle when his friend's horse, Rusty Win, captured the feature race by five lengths. He was hooked.

Pauly depicted the who's who in Thoroughbred racing in a portrait series commissioned by Arlington International Racecourse. Churchill Downs selected Pauly as the "Official Artist of the 2006 Kentucky Derby Commemorative Print." His painting of Barbaro was published as their Official Fan Appreciation Commemorative Art Print. In 2010, Pauly's artwork appeared on the hit reality show Undercover Boss which featured the COO of Churchill Downs, Bill Carstenjen.
Recently, his painting titled Waiting for Secretariat is featured in Kate Chenery Tweety's book Secretariat's Meadow - The Land, The Family, The Legend.

Pauly's portraits are known for their accuracy, their energy, their sentiment and their celebration of achievement. To view Thomas Allen Pauly's portfolio, please visit

 The Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund (PDJF)

The Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund (PDJF) is a 501(c)(3) public charity that provides financial assistance to some 60 former jockeys who have suffered catastrophic on-track injuries.

Since its founding in 2006, the fund has disbursed over $2.5 million to permanently disabled jockeys, most of whom have sustained paralysis or brain injuries.

Many of the jockeys we serve were injured while in their 20s and 30s and face decades of living with a disability. They have lost their income and the opportunity to build a financial cushion sufficient to support them and their families.

The medical needs of our disabled jockeys are great and may include daily assistance from a caregiver. In today's healthcare environment, costs continue to escalate -- posing still more challenges to individuals who courageously test their limits every day.

The PDJF strives to reach out to everyone in the Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse industry, their business partners and the great fans of this sport for their support.

Our long-term goal is to create an endowment that will enable the fund to be self-sufficient.

While we build that endowment we ask for your support so that we may continue to assist these permanently disabled jockeys with their day-to-day needs.
