WELLINGTON, Florida, Dec. 8–The Players Club, the most popular gathering place for equestrians in Wellington, will stage Top Shelf Dressage Under the Stars series for eight weeks beginning in January during Florida’s 2010 winter circuit.

Neil Hirsch, Players Club owner, announced Tuesday a program of entertainment, celebrities, dining and “thousands of dollars in prizes” for the event on the polo fields every Wednesday night from Jan. 27 through Mar. 17.

A previous series was successful enough for a return engagement, he said, but “we are stepping it up a notch.”

“In addition to being able to sit ringside and watch the horses, people will also have the chance to sit on the balcony and enjoy a buffet while overlooking the patio and field.”

Dressage rider and country singer Jenna Wyatt will host each event that includes celebrity judges. Admission is free.

Patron Tequila, Perrier Jouet Champagne and Absolut Vodka is sponsoring the series.

Shannon Dueck, a Canadian dressage rider based in Loxahatchee Florida, said: “Dressage Under the Stars was an awesome event. It was fun to ride in front of so many appreciative fans at The Players Club. I am so thrilled that they are bringing the dressage back this year, and I will be excited to participate in the events.”

“The Players Club has a long standing relationship with the equestrian community, and Dressage Under the Stars is a great way for the Players Club to connect to the exciting Wellington horse scene,” Hirsch said. “Having dinner and watching horses perform and dance on the field is pretty special.”
