San Diego horse racing takes place where the "turf meets the surf" at Del Mar, one of the most popular Thoroughbred horse racing tracks in the world. Fans flock to the track each summer to wager on their favorite horses during the annual Del Mar Thoroughbred Club racing season. Be part of the magic and nostalgia of this long-time horse race tradition dating back to 1937 when Del Mar track founder Bing Crosby greeted the first guests, and in 1938, the great legendary horse, Seabiscuit, won by a nose in an epic race against Ligaroti.
The Del Mar Race Track is “just a chip shot from the Pacific Ocean”, located on the Del Mar Fairgrounds, 20 miles north of San Diego and 100 miles south of Los Angeles.
