Name of Track:
Horse Racing at Del Mar
Del Mar Race Track, the place "where the turf meets the surf", opened in 1937 in a joint venture between entertainment celebrities Pat O’Brien, Jimmy Durante, Charles S. Howard, Oliver Hardy and Bing Crosby.
The track gained notoriety in the 1940's as the summer playground for many Hollywood stars, hosting the Bing Crosby Handicap, a race first held at Del Mar in 1946. Throughout the 1950s the track became the Saratoga of the West for summer racing.
Currently the San Diego Recetrack hosts some of the biggest events in the state, including the popular Pacific Classic, Eddie Read Stakes and Del Mar Oaks.
