Del Mar Racetrack & Fairgrounds information
Del Mar’s biggest draw was founded in 1937 by a prestigious group including Bing Crosby. It’s worth trying to brave the crowds on opening day, if nothing else to see the amazing spectacle of ladies wearing over-the-top hats. The rest of the season, you’ll have to be satisfied with the mere visual perfection of the track’s lush gardens and pink, Mediterranean-style architecture.
On opening day, the racetrack runs free double-decker shuttle buses to and from the Solana Beach train station.
