Del Mar Racing Season is in full effect in San Diego! We had the pleasure of attending opening day and have the scoop for all Del Mar Racetrack events coming up! Going to the races on opening day is a longtime San Diego tradition. It is THE DAY to wear fun or fancy attire and lavash hats. We enjoyed a walk through “The Party”, betting on a few races and all the people watching. If you’re looking for fun and fabulous events in Del Mar, check out our Del Mar Racetrack Events Guide below!
