You'll find excellent facilities in the 6-story stand. You'll have a great view of the races while enjoying a delicious meal on the Clubhouse Terrace or Del Mar Racetrack's other great dining options.

The track itself is exactly 1 mile (1.609 km) long, so there's plenty of room to get close to the action. Fans won't want to miss the most famous race at Del Mar, the TVG Pacific Classic, for runners three years and up, with a prize of $500,000.
Other 'must see' races include The Del Mar Oaks, the Bing Crosby Stakes, and the Del Mar Handicap, with purses of up to $250,000. The runners' field is first class, and the atmosphere electric.
The Breeders Cup, one of the most prestigious races in thoroughbred racing, held in the nearby Santa Anita track in 2019, will return to Del Mar Thoroughbred Club in 2021.
Del Mar Thoroughbred Club has a proud tradition, with some of the greatest horse racing icons competing here. Among many equine stars, in 1938, Seabiscuit, perhaps the most famous racehorse of all time, beat his rival Ligatori by a nose, after a nail-biting battle.
His courage provided a symbol of hope during the Great Depression, and his feat was later immortalized in the Hollywood movie of the same name. The Seabiscuit Stakes, one of the most popular races at the track, makes sure that his memory and spirit live on.
