LAS VEGAS — AVN Hall of Famer Sunset Thomas was a special guest of director John Corey at a screening of the documentary Lost in the Fog on Monday at the CineVegas Film Festival.
Thomas' name appears in the film because a thoroughbred racehorse named after her belonged to the same stable as the champion racehorse Lost in the Fog.
"I have a wonderful photo from the winners circle at Golden Gate Fields when Foggy won the Golden Bear Breeders Cup race on May 14, 2005," said Thomas. "[The] photo of myself and trainer Greg Gilchrist appeared on the front page of the Contra Costa Times two weeks later as part of the feature story about the horse they named after me!"
Owner Harry Aleo and Gilchrist kept Sunset Thomas (the horse) in the same row as Lost in the Fog.
"I've seen the film at least 100 times, but after meeting Sunset on Saturday, I noticed during the premiere that in the scene where we show the Aleo/Gilchrist equine ledger, the top name on the list is Sunset Thomas," said Fog director Corey.
"I cried so much during the film that tears literally washed those 33 black lashes right off my eyes!" said Thomas.
