Enjoy an evening of cocktails, hors d'ouvres and live music, mingling with Hall of Fame jockeys and other members of the Del Mar jockey colony, and viewing the latest equine related art, all while supporting the charitable work of Winners Foundation and celebrating this year's winner of Del Mar's Laffit Pincay, Jr. Award.
In conjunction with Erik Skoldberg Gallery and Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, Winners Foundation presents "The Jockeys of Del Mar" on Saturday, August 15 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. The event takes place at Erik Skoldberg Gallery, 1555 Camino Del Mar, Suite 310, Del Mar, Calif.
Catering will be by Il Foraio, and cocktail attire is suggested.
"Winners Foundation is excited to work with Erik Skoldberg and Del Mar Thoroughbred Club to put on this event, which will be the official 'after party' for this year's Pincay Award," said Bob Fletcher, executive director of Winners Foundation."The gallery makes a perfect venue to spotlight our jockeys and honor their accomplishments. Our jockey colony has always been very supportive of Winners Foundation and the vital services we provide for riders and all other members of the racing community."
The Laffit Pincay Jr. Award was established at Hollywood Park in 2004 and was moved to Del Mar last summer, where it is presented by the Hall of Fame jockey. The prestigious award honors an individual or organization that has served racing with integrity, dedication, determination, and distinction.
