Del Mar Thoroughbred Club

Del Mar Thoroughbred Club

Just a stone’s throw from the Pacific Ocean, this race track opened its gates back in 1937. The man at the turnstile collecting tickets that day was none other than the original laid-back Californian himself, Bing Crosby. Crosby and several of his Hollywood buddies conceived of a horse palace by the ocean where you could play all-day, party all night and leave all your cares behind. That light-hearted spirit remains today.
