SARATOGA SPRINGS – The online event many have been waiting for has started. The Marylou Whitney Collection Auction offers diverse purchasing opportunities for anyone who wishes to have a personal remembrance of the philanthropic icon known as the Queen of Saratoga.
The auction benefits the new building that will be the future home of the backstretch medical clinic operated at Saratoga Race Course by Saratoga Hospital and the Backstretch Employee Service Team.
Originally, the auction list featured Marylou’s 1985 red Jaguar XJ6; however, upon inspection it has been removed and replaced with her “Kentucky Jaguar,” a 1992 XJS Convertible in British Racing Green with tan leather interior, featuring a V12 Engine and under 36,000 miles.
The action began on July 27 and will continue through Saturday, Aug. 1, at 11:59 p.m. Bidding and “Buy It Now” options will be available. All are encouraged to register in advance by visiting marylouwhitney collection.com.
