There is only one place you'll be able to enjoy a little vino, a little food, and a thoroughbred or three. Gulftstream Park and The Village at Gulfstream Park are hosting Wine Walk for Retired Thoroughbreds tomorrow, beginning at 6 p.m. Says David Joseph, Wine Walk rep, "We're hoping to make this an annual event." Why not?
At $10 bucks a pop (kids are welcome and free!) anyone can enjoy the charitable festivities. Guests are invited to sample from five different wine tasting stations and seven food areas peppered throughout the Village in Hallandale.
Christmas lights will liven up the walking ring. You'll also be able to marvel at the Village's Festival of Lights Show later in the evening. Pony rides and photo ops will be offered to the kiddies, free of charge.
There will also be meet and greets and photo opportunities with majestic horses.
All proceeds go directly to Gulfstream Park Thoroughbred After-Care Program, chaired by Frank Stronarch. The goal of the program is to match retired horses with loving owners who will tend to their health, safety and well-being.
Not a bad use of your ten bucks.
To take part, sign up at Full Bodied Wine & Spa (954-458-4148).
