The Bing Crosby Season is a brief season of thoroughbred horse racing that usually takes place during the month of November at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club. If you’re planning to vacation in San Diego during that time, or if you’re in town on business, you should make time to attend a day of races at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in the oceanside city of Del Mar. A day at the racetrack is a fun, family friendly experience. Witness the beauty and grace of magnificent thoroughbred horses in a heart-pounding sprint to the finish line! You can even pick your favorites before the race starts and place a wager … if you’re feeling lucky.
Located about 20 miles north of downtown San Diego, the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club is one of the nation’s best horse racing tracks. Not only is the club well known for its majestic equines, but it’s also a chic spot for celebrities and SoCal’s social elite. Much like the annual Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs, a weekend at Del Mar frequently produces throngs of spectators with colorful suits, bowties, derby hats, sun dresses and fascinators.
The entire racing facility is beautifully designed and allows everyone to get close to the action. San Diego’s sunny skies and pleasant weather afford guests the choice of watching the races from either outside or inside.
