Million-Dollar Baby

| September 25, 2013 | Parties

THE PARTY The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club was packed as fans turned out for the running of the Riviera-sponsored Pacific Classic, the year’s richest purse at a cool $1 million. THE PLAYERS Il Palio’s outdoor patios were the perfect perch while at the members-only Turf Club, shaken Del margaritas were the sip du jour and opera glasses helped aficionados track the turf action. THE SCENE The crowd roared as favored horse Game On Dude—whose intended rider, Derby winner Joel Rosario, withdrew at the last minute after an injury at Saratoga—cleared the pack and handily vanquished the field.
