Wednesday July 16 is Opening Day at Del Mar!  Sand, sea and 70 degree temperatures make this the Godfather’s favorite race track.   Beats the heck out of 110 in Las Vegas and "hot and humid" in Oklahoma.  Remember, the worst day at Del Mar…is better than the best day working.

Gerson Racing has several two and three year old race horses on edge for Del Mar, including stakes winner Set Play and future superstars Launch The Bull and Touch Me Babe.  The Godfather has secured the sacred parking pass and plans to be "in the house" throughout July and August.  Note to self – remember to bring trainer Peter Miller some cigars!

The Godfather will host two events during the Del Mar season.  In July we’ll be be at the San Diego Yacht Club for a "Sit Down".  Guest list is executives, entrepreneurs and celebrities.  My good friend Steven Cantrell (won the America’s Cup) is hosting, and Barona Valley Ranch Resort and CareerBuilder are sponsoring.  Translation – free food and open bar!  In August we’ll have the Bing Crosby Suite for a CIO Mixer.  Forty CIOs will be on hand to meet their peers and learn way more than they ever wanted to know about horse racing.  This event is sponsored by NetScout Systems and AT&T.

See you at Del Mar!
