Off to the Races

THE PARTY After Monster Bea took home the win at Del Mar’s Oceanside Stakes, S.D.’s finest flocked to Rancho Valencia for the annual After Pony Party. Held on the resort’s lush grounds, the Tulum, Mexico-themed fete was sponsored by Modern Luxury San Diego and garnered more than 400 guests, who mixed and mingled in impressive toppers. THE SCENE While Bulevar Descarga got the party going with live Latin tunes, partygoers including Nadia Castillo and Gray Bowman noshed on cilantro-lime shrimp tacos; cheese and squash blossom quesadillas; and a chile pork loin served with roasted pineapple. Other VIPs, like Gail Cornelius and Geri Savitt, sipped on refreshing margaritas and perused new Porsche convertibles scattered about the lawn. THE HIGHLIGHTS It wouldn’t be an After Pony Party without a spirited photo booth, and this year’s did not disappoint. Packed with attendees hoping for an Insta-worthy snap, the photo station, which was fully equipped with fun props, proved to be the life of the party! –Photos by Tim Hardy
