Admission tickets for Opening Day may now be purchased online, or at the gate on Wednesday. And get this, even though more than 40,000 fans are expected to help celebrate the new season, they never sell out of admission tickets! And the horses aren't the only thing to watch that day...Opening Day is home to the annual, and now famous, One and Only Truly Fabulous Hats Contest! Whether you chose to participate with your own head wear, or just watch the hundreds of festive hats go by, it really is a sight to see in itself. Gates open at 11:30 am, and the first race begins at 2pm.
Follow the link here to the official website of the Del Mar Races, for more information on Opening Day and the other great days they have in store.
So if you're looking for a great way to spend a summer day in San Diego, why not head on over to one of the most fabulous, fashionable and fun festivities in the west? See you where the turf meets the surf, at Del Mar!
