Del Mar Horse Racing Season
July 18 - September 5, 2012 (five days weekly, except Monday and Tuesday)
The "turf meets the surf" at the Del Mar Racetrack where fans flock each summer to wager on their favorite horses during the popular, annual Del Mar Thoroughbred Club racing season, mid-July - early-September. The magic and nostalgia of this long-time tradition dates back to 1937 when Bing Crosby greeted the first guests, and Seabiscuit won by a nose in the infamous race in 1938. The season features the nation's top horses, trainers and jockeys, and plenty of fun in the sun.
The Summer Concert Series again brings top musical acts to racing fans every Friday, and select Saturdays and Sundays from July 18 through September 5 following the day’s races. The concerts are FREE with racetrack admission purchased prior to the last race. Family Sundays and Free and Easy Wednesdays are back again as well. This year's entertainment calendar highlights include Del Mar's 75th Anniversary Celebration (Jul. 21), the Gourmet Food Truck & Craft Beer Festival (July 28) and the $1 Million TVG Pacific Classic (Aug. 26).
