ARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 21, 2020)–“Go West Young Lady!”  A successful event for nearly two decades in Saratoga Springs, New York, Santa Anita will host its first Fashionable Fillies Luncheon in the track’s Chandelier Room on Sunday, March 8.

The event is coordinated by The Jockey Club Safety Net Foundation, a charitable trust which provides, on a confidential basis, financial relief and assistance to needy members of the Thoroughbred industry and their families.

“The Fashionable Fillies Luncheon has been a successful event on the east coast and we’re excited to bring it to Santa Anita,” said Shannon Kelly, Executive Director of The Jockey Club Safety Net Foundation.  “We wanted to bring it west to engage the California racing community and show the important work that the Safety Net does for those in need in the racing industry across the country.”

The Fashionable Fillies Luncheon, which takes place from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., will include cocktails, lunch and the opportunity to shop with local vendors.  Tickets are $150 each and all proceeds will be earmarked by the foundation to benefit the backstretch community of Southern California.

Those interested in this very worthwhile cause are encouraged to respond by this Monday, Feb. 24 to Shannon Kelley at (212) 521-5327, or via email at skelly@jockeyclub.com.
