"A Promise in Stone," an original work by Ginny Harding
"A Promise in Stone," an original work of art by renowned equine artist Ginny Harding, will be raffled off at Sun Downs before the last race—the $25K Pot O' Gold Futurity—on Sunday.

Raffle tickets are available for $1.00 at the track on Saturday and Sunday. If you can't get out to the races, you can still purchase raffle tickets by visiting Harding's website: http://www.ginnyharding.com.

The rock is the third in a series of five painted rocks, one for each week of the five-week Sun Downs meeting (see http://www.theracingjournal.com/news/news-1236.html and http://www.theracingjournal.com/news/news-1243.html). The rock was taken from the stretch at Sun Downs during renovation in March. Last week's rock, "First Time Starters," was won by Linda Lunde of Kennewick.

Proceeds from raffle-ticket sales benefit the Northern Racing Quarter Horse Association purses and scholarships.
