California jockeys, trainers, owners and other industry participants joined honorary host Alex Solis at the 8th Annual Golf Classic for CERF (California Equine Retirement Foundation) Tuesday, August 4th at Del Mar Country Club.
A total of 89 players participated in the event, which included scramble tournament golf, lunch on the course and on-course contests. The Del Mar weather cooperated to produce a perfectly sparkling day with temperatures in the low 80s, and the course was absolutely spectacular. The day concluded with an awards dinner and silent and live auctions, with Trevor Denman as master of ceremonies.
Founded in 1986 by Grace Belcuore, CERF has been giving ex-racehorses a happy home for over 23 years. CERF is well known throughout the Thoroughbred Industry for its uncompromised commitment to our equine friends. When their racing days are over, CERF gives these horses a home where they can retire in comfort or, if appropriate, be rehabilitated and moved on to their next career. CERF houses 70 plus residents daily, many of whom will be living out their final days at the CERF Ranch in Winchester, California.
All proceeds from this event will be used EXCLUSIVELY for the care of these horses. To make a donation to CERF, click here.
