We hadn't been here in 18 years and know now that 18 years is too long! We were there for the Santa Anita Handicap which we watched from our box seats. Its worth the extra money and not that expensive and the shade was nice with 80 degree plus weather. There were 11 races and the excitement of the track just soaked into us. The staff at the racetrack are friendly and helpful and really add to the whole experience. I'm one to pick the horses by their fun name or the fact that its a grey horse or by the jockey. My husband reads the stats. I win more than he does so that shows that a lack of knowledge of horses or horseracing does not detract from the fun of winning. We have sat in the infield which was also a lot of fun. I envy my husband who grew up in a family that loved a day at the races. Great for all ages! And why aren't more people there? We also went on the Seabiscuit tour the following day which was FREE and worth our time for a back scene look at the racetrack. Reservations are advised for the tour as numbers are limited.
