It’s where the “surf meets the turf at old Del Mar” and has been attracting horse racing fans since 1937. The race track backs up against the ocean so it is a wonderful way to escape the heat and maybe even win some money. Del Mar is a beautiful racetrack with several places you can buy your lunch.
