“Horses and the Pacific Ocean !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

Opening Day was great ! The mild weather, attractive hats , beautiful horses , playground @ the infield area and the invigorating smoothies all contributed for a perfect opening day !
Just ignore the horrendous traffic , the crowd and filled to the brim parking lot !

“The best race track in the USA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

If horse racing is all about a unique experience, Del Mar is the place. I have been to the Turf Club- very fancy and to the clubhouse seating- a comfortable day with the real people. Wherever you walk, there are photos on the walls of Old Hollywood legends like Bing Crosby, etc.
Then there is the racing- it is really good horses running in exciting races. Everything is first class so the betting windows are pretty and easy to bet from. Even the food is good- from the first class expereince at the Turf Club (sport coat is required) to the hot dogs in the clubhouse- pretty good. It is a wonderful experience for a day away from the beach.

“The one and only”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

This is without a doubt the best racetrack in the good ole USA. Every time I go I never want to leave. The areas is fantastic and the racing is top notch. Also the jockeys are real accessible for pictures and autographs. Just a total party and one of a kind atmosphere

“Bet the Ponies”

What a fun afternoon! Lots of parking, great seating, big time racing and betting, and dining at all different levels. At times they will have a
concert afterwards.
