My grandfather was a jockey and then owner on the twenties and thirties. Joseph James Woods. I have a lot of priceless memorabilia. One in particular is the silk venue of march 23 1930 of the Agua Caliente Jockey Club from Baja California. Please email me with any information and who I might speak to about all the horse memorabilia. Thank You, Joy Woods Granddaughter
