Hats, Heels & Hooves
July 19, 2017
The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe has partnered with the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club to kick off summer racing season with Hats, Heels & Hooves, the Official Opening Day After-Party co-hosted with Ranch & Coast Magazine on Wednesday, July 19, from 5-11pm. The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe’s Azalea lawn, ballroom, and pool area will transform into an authentic Kentucky Thoroughbred Farm for an authentic equestrian experience with fine food, spirits, and entertainment.
The magnificent surroundings of The Inn will provide the perfect backdrop for guests to mingle with some of the jockeys while enjoying live entertainment. A portion of event proceeds will benefit the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund, which provides financial assistance to approximately 60 former jockeys who have suffered catastrophic, on-track injuries.
“We are extremely honored that the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club approached us to become the Official Opening Day After Party in only our second year,” says Jerome Strack, general manager of The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. “We want to emphasize that this is just not a party but an event to support the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund. The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe is the perfect location to continue the celebrations of Opening Day and mingle with the jockeys.”
The event is open to guests ages 21 and older. General admission tickets will include an elaborate culinary display provided by Chef Casey Thompson from 6-8pm, a welcome cocktail, and access to the party. VIP admission includes exclusive access to the party, a private dinner buffet, bottle service (price includes two bottles of Moët & Chandon), and a designated server.
General admission tickets are $150 per person until 11:30pm on July 18. Tickets and VIP spaces are available for purchase on Eventbrite. Tickets will be $200 at the door on July 19 on a first come, first serve basis.
