Went to the Breeders Cup at Santa Anita for the fourth time. The venue is very user friendly and can easily handle the crowd. Full access to all areas of the track. Betting and beer lines very short.

It's our first visit to a race track in the U.S. We were excited, and had lots of fun together with a few other families.

Santa Anita race track is one of the few tracks left in SoCal since the closing of Hollywood Park. It is a destination track for many of the major races. My friend owns horses so we are always pleased to attend when his horses run. The track is set in the Los Angeles backdrop of the San Gabriel mountains. Betting... More

We had a lovely experience at the Santa Anita Race Park. We were in town August of last year during the 616 Fest. It was a massive food truck festival with countless vendors and plenty of shopping. It was super busy FYI.

We love to come to Santa Anita Track -- as it is such an always dressed for the public Southern California experience. We always say we should come back more often. And with its rarely full stands-- worry that it will not be there forever-- like it should be, if they keep it in the condition it is now. Fun... More

This has to be one of Southern Calif's. most well known and best kept secrets. This is certainly not the track of my father and grandfather. From the food trucks to the BBQ, to the micro brew days in the infield there is so much to do other than play the ponies and that's always a blast as well. Great... More
