THE
TASTING ROOM
Don’t tell me you missed it! Frankly, I think it is the best wine tasting in California. How can you go
wrong? Great wine, fine cuisine, and the horses. I am speaking of our Santa Anita Uncorked event,
June 10th at the Great Race Place, Santa Anita Race Track.
all day.
Seabiscuit
,
The Jazz Singer
,
A Star Is Born
, and even
National Lampoon’s Vacation
: all are
movies featuring a scene or scenes of this wonderful venue.
Well, it is our 10th year of producing this wine tasting, and it supports a variety of charities.
Proceeds earmarked for CARMA (California Retirement Management Account) are used to retire
racehorses in dignity, meaning they are sent to one of many racehorse retirement farms throughout
the United States. In fact, when visiting Kentucky a few years ago, we toured such a facility and
were very impressed with the conditions and quality of care for these majestic animals.
Besides the incredible
views and the gorgeous
horses, the nostalgia
of Santa Anita is quite
intriguing. I don’t know of
any horse racing movies
that Santa Anita didn’t
find a cameo appearance
in and one notable that
comes to mind is The
Marx Brothers’
A Day at
the Races
. In fact, I found
myself quoting the movie
A DAY AT THE RACES
A few of the 500 who played the ponies, enjoyed the wine and relished the cuisine
