Del Mar Racing Starts Today!
Opening Day at Del Mar has long been a favorite activity of San Diegans! In 1937 Bing Crosby welcomed guests and in 1938 Seabiscuit achieved world-renown fame. Today through September 8th, Del Mar welcomes young and old to share in the fun, excitement, and history that has helped define Del Mar. Over 40,000 race fans are expected at Opening Day! The “One and Only Truly Fabulous Hats Contest” brings fashion to the track, as well.
Del Mar Racing is closed Monday (except Labor Day) and Tuesday, and you can check their website for more information. Seniors receive free admission tomorrow and Family Fun Day is Sunday where children 17 and under are free and adults are $6. Friday evenings at the track feature “twilight” racing followed by music concerts. Various bands are featured this summer, based on the evening’s theme, from reggae or alternative rock to a Neil Diamond tribute and hip hop. Concerts are included in regular race admission of $10. Opening Day admission is $20.
