Home of the legendary Seabiscuit, this stunning, art-deco thoroughbred racetrack is the oldest and one of the most prestigious in Southern California. Free tram tours take you to Seabiscuit’s barn, the jockey’s room and other sights during racing season.

The track opened in 1934 and pioneered the use of the automated starting gate, the photo finish and the electrical timer. Stars who kept and raced their horses here have ranged from Bing Crosby and Errol Flynn to Mark McGrath (of Sugar Ray), Alex Trebek and Burt Bacharach. The only stain on its legacy happened during WWII when it served as a Japanese-American detention camp.
