Following a fun-filled evening on the first ever Ladies Night in the Vessels Club at Los Alamitos, management at the Orange County oval has proudly announced Thursday, October 23 as the date for the next Ladies Night event.

Nearly 50 ladies joined in the fun on Thursday, October 9, by taking part in an exclusive handicapping contest featuring cash prizes. After five exciting horse races at Los Alamitos, Esther Perrotto of Cypress emerged as the top female handicapper of the night, correctly tabbing the winners of the final four races of the night, while also predicting the exacta to win the first place tiebreaker. Kaia Vilberg of Irvine finished in second place as she also selected the winners in four of five races. In the tiebreaker, Vilberg had the winner and fourth place finisher.

In addition to the handicapping fun, Ladies Night rocked the night away with the wonderful voice of Tricia Burke and the outstanding music of Buzzy James. The event, which got underway at 7 p.m., lasted over three hours of fun in the elegant Vessels Club. Free admission to Los Alamitos’ luxurious Vessels Club, complimentary appetizers, drink specials, a special Thursday night dinner menu were all part of the inaugural edition of Ladies Night.

“The atmosphere was great and every one was truly having a fun time,” said Orlando Gutierrez, the marketing director at Los Alamitos. “A lot of our guest came away from the event knowing more about the wonderful Vessels Club, more about Quarter Horse racing, and more about handicapping the races. It was a win-win for all. We’re confident that this event will receive great word of mouth and we’re looking forward to hosting another outstanding event on October 23.”
