The Gilmore Such Group hosted 60 clients and guests for The Pacific Classic in the Ancient Title sky room at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club.
“This is the seventh year I’ve done this event and it’s always a client favorite,” said Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Advisor Shawna Such.
Special guest retired Racing Hall of Fame inductee Julie Krone was on hand to escort guests on tours of the jockeys’ room, the rooftop, and paddock.
