INDIANTOWN -- Maurece "Moe" Williams, a retired running back for the Minnesota Vikings, is hosting a Super Bowl Sunday poker run and barbeque to benefit his new passion: retired thoroughbreds.

Mr. Williams owns and trains racehorses. He also provides housing for more than 90 retired thoroughbreds on his Genuine Pleasure Farm property through a nonprofit organization, the Florida Thoroughbred Retirement and Adoptive Care program.

Mr. Williams invites the public to his Indiantown property as a kickoff to Super Bowl Sunday festivities on Feb. 3.

Here's the schedule of events: 10-11a.m.: poker run registration at Family Post Park, 15651 Warfield Blvd. (Highway 710), Indiantown.

10 a.m.-2 p.m.: Poker run from Family Post Park to Genuine Pleasure Farm, 10801 S.W. Fox Brown Road, Indiantown.

11 a.m.-4 p.m.: Barbeque carnival at Genuine Pleasure Farm.

Activities include pony rides, music, face painting, silent auction, food and a cash bar.

The poker run is $10 per bike. Barbeque is $5 per plate. All proceeds will go toward Florida TRAC horses at Genuine Pleasure Farm assisting with proper shelter, feed, fencing, pasture management and farm equipment.
