Editorial Review of
Del Mar Racetrack
The Del Mar Racetrack has the distinction of being North America’s Number One track in terms of attendance and handles for more than a decade.
Daily average attendance has been in the 30,000-plus level for the past few years and improvements to the track are expected to boost this number even higher in the future.
Daily average handles are estimated to be near the $13 million mark and growing. The track has a one-mile main dirt track and a seven furlong turf course. The track runs during the summer at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and can stable more than a thousand horses. Del Mar is known for its tan stucco grandstand located directly on the Pacific Ocean. In early 2007, Del Mar Thoroughbred Club installed a new Polytrack surface for a price of approximately $9 million.
Officially known as Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, this charming horse racing haven has alternatively been dubbed the “Racetrack Where the Turf Meets the Surf” and the “Heaven by the Pacific”. It hosts exciting thoroughbred racing typically from July to September. Del Mar Race Track has two tracks, the Main Track and the Turf Course.
