This Saturday At Hollywood Park Sounds Pretty Special

Two Great Ladies, Zenyatta & Caroline
On Monday, Southern California Thoroughbred Rescue's Caroline Betts took to the microphone on Eye On Gaming's weekly radio show (link to listen here). Caroline, a professor of Economics at USC, has been a long time advisor to us at HANA (see our interview with her here). She talked takeout and racing of course, and you can't help but learn something listening to the banter. It was a great interview.

For those who know her, though, her greatest passion is the retirement and care of thoroughbred racehorses. She works tirelessly at helping them find homes, and have happy lives. It seems not a day goes by without seeing a tweet or a facebook post on something she has cooking to help our equine pals.

For those of you near Hollywood Park, there is something very special planned this Saturday, and we thought you may want to know about it.

A "Day at the Races" is being held and you can get tickets here. The tickets include valet parking, a program, lunch and some good times with like minded bettors and horse lovers. What could be better?

It's been said you can tell what kind of person you are by the friends you keep, and in this case it may be game, set match. There's a silent auction planned and boy, is there is some nice stuff for you to bid on.

How about a private drum lesson from Richie Ramone of the Ramone's?

How about a private poker lesson with Cindy Laviolette?

How about a print donated by Mike Smith?

A set of golf clubs donated by a professional bettor?

Dinner with (one of our faves, I don't know about you) Zoe Cadman and a star of the NBC show Community?

And a ton more.

There will be some sharp players at the event, some celebrity types, and hopefully some sun, and of course some horses.

Consider helping out if you can, and if you can't, please take a look at Caroline's website and make a donation.

She's one of the very best people in our sport, and we wish her, her event, and the horses she's about to save because of it, the very best.
