Do The Jockeys Get to Ride the Cougars?

news-cougar1_t350As part of the advertisement campaign for the Cougar II Handicap Race at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, the always innovative race track held a Miss Cougar 2009 contest. Because just because you’re at the race track on a Wednesday doesn’t mean you can’t try and meet some mature ladies!

Last year’s race had a mere 9,213 fans in attendance but thanks to the promotion — and free admission and half-price concessions — this year’s tilt had 13,245 fans.

Among the fans in the grandstand were

Tom Wold, 29, of San Diego [who]¬†arrived with four friends he had e-mailed about the contest. ‘I said, let’s round up all my under-30 friends and let’s get over here,’ he said, holding up his beer. ‘We want to meet the winners and console the losers.’

Rosie Goldstein, (above right) a real estate broker from Tierrasanta took home the crown and title of Miss Cougar 2009, earning a free day at the races for her and three friends. What a lame prize! For Goldstein, who describes herself as “in her 40s,” this contest was very important, after all, she defines a cougar as “a woman who’s independent, in control and not afraid to take chances.”

“I hold my head up proud,” said Goldstein, “I have never felt more beautiful than this year.”
