Del Mar Racetrack

The Del Mar Racetrack is a historic Thoroughbred racetrack located in the coastal community of Del Mar, California, about thirty minutes north of La Jolla. Each racing season brings thousands of fans from San Diego County and beyond, and the track is also known for its summer concert lineups. The track is unique in that there are two distinct racing seasons each year; the first taking place from July through September and the second, shorter season beginning in November.

The Del Mar Race track is a fun change from the normal outdoor activities in San Diego. The food at the different restaurants is typically pretty decent, the staff are always friendly, and betting on the horses is exciting

So much fun! I can't wait to go back. Apparently the gray horse is always the fastest. This is such a fun way to gamble cheap.

Very friendly service, it is not overwhelming in size and you can view the horses as they parade before they enter the facility
