From Dec. 1-15, guests can donate $1 to Gulfstream's Thoroughbred Aftercare Program and the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund to enter for a chance to visit Little Mike on Gulfstream's backstretch and spend time with trainer Dale Romans. On Dec. 15 the names of 50 people will be drawn to spend the morning of Dec. 16 talking with Romans and meeting Little Mike.

Donations will be taken for raffle tickets beginning Opening Day between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. at Gulfstream's north box office. Winners will be announced at GulfstreamPark.com, Facebook.com/GulfstreamPark, and Facebook.com/GPAfterCare.

Fans can also see Little Mike Saturday during Gulfstream's Opening Day. The gelding will be paraded in front of the grandstand between the ninth and 10th races on the program.

Little Mike, owned by Priscilla Vaccarezza, won four races at Gulfstream in 2011, including the Fort Lauderdale (G3), Canadian Turf (G3) and Appleton (G3). He returned last winter to win the Florida Sunshine Millions Turf before going on to win the Arlington Million, Breeders' Cup Turf and Woodford Reserve Turf Classic.

"The Vaccarezza family is very generous to afford fans this opportunity," said Gulfstream Park President Tim Ritvo. "Not only can 50 fans meet Little Mike and Dale Romans, but at the same time they can donate to two worthy causes in Thoroughbred aftercare and the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund."
