  • Driving down the 101 area site seeing we came across the beautiful Race Track - I’m not a horse person or gambler but do appreciate the stunning beauty of this landscaped marvel ! Truly beautiful yo s...  more »
  • Very friendly service, it is not overwhelming in size and you can view the horses as they parade before they enter the facility  more »
  • We sat at the tables in front which was worthwhile. Most of the food is not great but the hamburger was good. Table service is slow. It was fun to see the horses before the races and make small bets. ...  more »

  • I went and caught the offspring play there. The deal you get by going before the last race is a steal. It costs 8 dollars to get in. To see a band like the offspring for 8 dollars is incredible. The band was great and was into the venue. The acoustics were solid and the crowd great. Also got to see the last couple horse races and my sister won a few bucks. As expected tho drinks and food are pricey. Overall a fun experience I'd do again.
  • Breeders cup races but from the infield one could not see the races. Had to watch on a big screen. Could have stayed home and done that.
  • Always a fun time. Especially when you win! $6 entry fee and free seating available. Of course you can upgrade your seating as well for a true "horse derby" experience.
  • I loved attending the 2017 Breeders Cup race at Del Mar racetrack. A first for Del Mar, there were some issues regarding sufficient seating availability ( You have to buy chairs but they ran out early) poor placement of television screens ( The Sun was shining directly into the screens making it almost impossible to see the screen) insufficient bathrooms( The primary ladies Room had only 5 toilet stalls that were working), Sufficient tram services from parking 2 main entrances( it was about .5 mile from uber drop to entrance to infield tunnel entrance, then at least .25 mile to GA viewing location) and worst of all, departing was an absolute nightmare. We had taken lift into the parking lot and walked as discussed above. When it was time to leave we walked about a mile to get into the line for lyft and Uber. Then we waited an hour without moving an inch, nor did the private cars attempting to exit. Finally we found out that there were no Uber drivers available. We personally called and connected with a Lyft driver who had been stuck in the lyft/uber lot for 1.5 hours, and we made our way to him and successfully exited parking lot in about 35 minutes thereafter ... much sooner than the hundreds of people still standing in the Uber lines. It was a wonderful event, but marred by these matters of courtesy that we have come to expect. Especially when infield tickets were over $150 each... cheapest available yes. But I worried about my daughter, a chemotherapy patient, my 8 month pregnant niece, and my 70something guest being on th fir feet so long. I'm sure Del Mar will do better next time.
  • I love Del Mar!! It's a beautiful and lively place. Always something going on. Love the town
