    Place your bets early. The lines get pretty long and can take forever, especially on weekdays.

    Fun, fun, fun. An excursion that is a must for summer or Fall.

    Fantastic place for a sunny day in the summer. Bet on the ponies and catch a free concert after

    Great place to come for the races. But due to crowds on big days your going to either have to pick to camp out in front of the paddock or in front of the track to watch the races.

    Summer Concert Series FTW!!! Also, this a long shot runner's track - don't bet all favorites!

    Mobile betting is nice (only if you're at the track). I like not having to get up to fight the betting crowds :)

    The races are amazing, the sights are beautiful. It is pretty cheap to just go watch the races without betting much money.

    A good place for fun to dress up and feel fancy for a day. Also a good excuse to buy a big hat!

    Kudos to Mike working the wine bar on the 3rd level - great conversations, great tips, and he mixes a mean drink (or a mild drink if you need one like I did).:

    If you love horse racing after the season ends head on down to Surfside Race Place the Satellite Wagering facility of the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The action continues....

    Hang out in the paddock. That is where the die hard horse handicappers may give you a hot tip

    Aileen Brazeau · July 26, 2013

    You cannot use the mobile app for betting everywhere so plan ahead if you want to wander around.

    1. You can bring non-alcoholic beverages and snacks for a picnic. 2. Great race hats are a must. 3. Don't bring easy-up or umbrella or anything glass.

    Bring your own chairs to enjoy a day in the infield.

    Possibly one of the top 50 wonders of the world. I wish I owned the place. PS - they say gray horses have weak ankles, but I say don't believe a word they say. Trust your gut and win some money.

    Get the wristband! 5 cups of 7 oz beer for $17!! And manga manga is a win!!

    view from il palio is two thumbs up. buy the union tribune to get an insider look at the horse and jockey ratings but always go w/ your gut instinct when placing a bet!

    Special window on the top floor of the grand stand. Shortest line.

    Sean Callahan · July 7, 2012

    Before each race, all the horses come out for a showing (near the front gate). Make sure you go and look at each horse in the eyes. Then you'll know who to bet on!

    Del Mar ran its first race in 1937 and founder Bing Crosby worked the gates while the first patrons came flowing in, over 15,000! Learn more about the history of Del Mar. Read more
