About the EventAdventures by the the Book™ is honored to partner with Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at San Diego State University for a Thoroughbreds of Del Mar Edventure, at the famous Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, established in 1937, when Bing Crosby, who partnered to build the expansive venue, personally stood at the gates to great his guests. Join us where “the turf meets the surf” for a behind the scenes tour of the track, facilities, and horses, with author of The B Team, Alan Mindell. Our Edventure will begin in the trainer barn where students can watch as the horses are bathed and walked after coming in from their exercise. Back outside we will walk to the track, where the horses will be working out and students can get an up close look at the routine. The tour will conclude in another barn for a photo op with the majestic horses and a potential encounter with a horse trainer, jockey, or owner for a Q&A session.
Event includes private behind the scenes tour, a copy of The B Team, book discussion, Q&A, book signing, and the opportunity to meet the author up close and personal in an intimate and authentic setting.
