California cool, fast horses, and fashion flair come together at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club on opening day, November 11. The Bing Crosby season, named in honor of the club's founder, is a great way to experience the class of the racetrack.
Veterans Day Salute
The first day of the Del Mar racing season is Veterans Day, and the track is hosting a special party to honor veterans. Event admission includes a BBQ, racetrack admission, and a post-race concert by country singer Coffey Anderson.
Dress in red, white, and blue to participate in the Stars & Stripes Fashion Contest on opening day. There are more than $3,000 in prizes for the best-dressed. You can win for looking the most patriotic or the most like a '40s or '50s pin-up or a modern-day celebrity.

Can't make opening day? The Del Mar Track racing season extends through December 4, so there are lots of opportunities to hear hooves pounding.
