Del Mar Thoroughbred Club. The racetrack attracts the best horses and jockeys in the country—Seabiscuit even won a much-talked-about race here in 1938. And, thanks to a newly added fall season, spectators can enjoy 11 weeks of racing annually at the historic Del Mar Racetrack. The summer season starts in mid-July and runs through early September and includes a summer concert series and opening and closing day celebrations. The fall season lasts for a month starting in November. The track, which opened in 1937, was founded in part by singer and actor Bing Crosby. 2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd., Del Mar, CA, 92014.
