Opening Day and other events at the Del Mar Racetrack

Last week Del Mar kicked off its 79th summer racing season with its traditional (and spectacular) Del Mar Opening Day! As I mentioned previously (here), overdressing and hats/fascinators/head pieces are a must for Opening Day and if you know me, I don't let those overdressing opportunities pass me by, so this year I went with this glam ensemble (all linked below).

As always, the crowd of fashionable people did not disappoint especially the hat contest competitors, and I say competitors because they certainly brought out their A-game! How amazing are these finalists! Hard to believe those masterpieces can balance on their heads!

But Opening Day is not the only highlight of the Del Mar Racing season, aside from the horse races there are a lot of great events for everyone as they have a slew of events at the track! 

Here are some upcoming events to note:

$1 Million TVG Pacific Classic on August 18th is Del Mar’s richest and most prestigious stakes race! This event draws in thousands of fans to the track to witness the nation’s top equine athletes and Thoroughbreds race to the finish.

Michelada Rumble is making its Del Mar debut on Saturday, Aug. 25. This is the biggest michelada competition in all of SoCal. Guests can enjoy a variety of carefully-crafted micheladas from 20 vendors, watch Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling and check out the car exhibition with SoCal’s nicest lowriders.

Donuts Day on July 28 and Aug. 11. From 8-10 a.m.Del Mar will offer free coffee, orange juice and decadent donuts to kick start the day. The whole family can watch the horses work out on the track – and kids can enjoy face painting, free prizes and a meet and greet with Del Mar mascot, Pony Boy!
