‘A Fiesta for the Horses’

“A Fiesta for the Horses” benefit was held Aug. 20 at En Fuego Cantina & Grill in Del Mar. En Fuego will donate 10 percent of all restaurant sales to After the Finish Line on this night and $1 for every Finish Line Margarita sold throughout the month of August.

Special guests at the event included Hall of Fame jockey Don Pierce and Hall of Fame trainer Gary Jones, as well as “Celebrity Jockey Bartenders.” The reality show Stable Wars airing on Fox Sports was also in attendance, filming for an upcoming episode.

After the Finish Line is an all volunteer 501 (c) 3 funding nonprofit dedicated to the welfare of Thoroughbred horses that can no longer race or breed. ATFL awards emergency funds, every month of the year, to rescue organizations in California and across the United States that save, rehabilitate and re-train the Off Track Thoroughbreds for a second career or retirement.
