I rode Revelationís pale horse of Hades and one day I will follow Jesus through heaven on a white horse.

Eddie Donnally has lived a most unusual life.

    He is the only professional horse jockey to have won an Eclipse Award for Newspaper Writing and one who has been a television show producer, racing show host, certified fund raiser, ordained minister and hospital and hospice chaplain. A jockey for 20-years, he rode in some 10,000 races at 54 tracks, winning an estimated 1,200. He was once indicted for sports bribery and left the Los Angeles Twin Towers jail to begin his ministry career at the Los Angeles Dream Center, where in less than five years, he became a licensed Foursquare Minister.

    A former journalist at the "Dallas Morning News", he's published over 100 articles in other newspapers and magazines, was an Associate Pastor at two Los Angeles Foursquare Churches and is an endorsed chaplain. Active in disaster response, he recently led a team of 15 responders to provide spiritual care to victims of Hurricane Sandy. He served as Director of Development for the Race Track Chaplaincy of America for eight years. There, he founded the "White Horse Award," given each year during Breeders' Cup week to an underserved racing hero. He earned a Certificate in Fund Raising from UCLA and holds a Doctorate of Ministry.

    His story has been published in magazines, discussed on radio shows and featured on "The 700 Club." He is a frequent speaker in churches, recovery conferences and rehab centers. He shares his life as a checkered jockey, his sibling sexual trauma and battles with a crack cocaine addiction and same sex promiscuity, and the supernatural jail cell miracle that put him in full time ministry for 17-years. Ordained and endorsed as a chaplain by the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, he is active in disaster response, providing spiritual care following the earthquake in Haiti , tornados in Northern Alabama and Joplin MS, and more recently on Staten Island following Super-storm Sandy. He and his wife Sandi live in Clearwater Florida where he ministers as a hospice and hospital chaplain.
