In addition, silent and Chinese auctions featured items from polo and WTR supporters. Tables of gift baskets, trips and horse-related items were given by supporters including local tack shops and Wellington, Florida-based The Tackeria. Spectators also enjoyed a Wild, Wild West-themed tailgate competition. The Work to Ride team included Kareem Rosser, Daymar Rosser, Gigi Velásquez, Mosiah Gravesande, Marc Harley, Marisol Jimenez, Malachi Lyles, Esteban Penados, Julian Penados and Tinicum's Ann Oniskey. The Tinicum team had Talha Chaudhry, Carol Hails, Bill Thomas, Audrey Van Luvanee and Val Washington. The match fell on one of the few dry weekends in an unusually rainy season. The annual benefit provides a view of the complex support system orchestrated by program founder Lezlie Hiner for the young people who make their way to Chamounix Stables in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park, and pick up a pitchfork and polo mallet.
