INGLEWOOD, Calif. (April 26, 2012)—Betfair Hollywood Park will pay tribute to former Hollywood Park chairman, president and chief operating officer Marje Everett Saturday, May 19.
To honor the memory of Everett, who passed away March 23 at 90, Betfair Hollywood Park will rename the Milady Handicap, a fixture on the Spring/Summer calendar, the Marjorie L. Everett Handicap.
A gathering will be held in the Gold Cup Room immediately after the last race, which will be the Marjorie L. Everett Handicap.
Those wishing to share their memories of Everett, who was part of track management from 1972-1991, will be able to do so.
A Grade II for fillies and mares at 1 1/16 miles over Cushion Track, the Milady has been won twice in the past by such stars as A Gleam, Adored, Azeri, Bayakoa, Paseana and Zenyatta.
The May 19 program will also include the simulcast of the Preakness Stakes from Pimlico.
