Del Mar, Home of the 2017 Breeders’ Cup, Gears Up For Fall Season of Thoroughbred Racing

With Del Mar closing out a stellar 78th summer season, the racetrack is looking ahead to its annual fall meet. The track’s second season, known as the ‘Bing Crosby Season,’ is set to kick-off Wednesday, November 1, followed by one of Thoroughbred racing’s most prestigious international events, the 2017 Breeders’ Cup World Championships on November 3 and 4.

The racetrack’s fall season, now heading into its fourth year, is all about bringing back the old-school cool of the era and style of the track’s founder and entertainment icon Bing Crosby. With its deep-rooted history in Thoroughbred racing and high-status as the go-to spot for the rich and famous, the iconic racetrack is the perfect host for this year’s 34th running of the Breeders’ Cup. The event will make history when it debuts “where the turf meets the surf” and with it brings top horses and trainers from around the world to race at the seaside oval.

Opening Day of ‘Bing Crosby Season’ is Wednesday, November 1, and will attract the region’s most stylish ladies and dapper gentlemen for the Opening Day Vintage Hollywood Fashion Contest. Fashion enthusiasts can head to the track in their best Hollywood-inspired outfit or dress up as their favorite celebrity idol to enter. Up to $3,000 in prizes will be given out to the winners of each category: Most Glamorous, Best Dressed Couple or Debonair Man, Best Celebrity Lookalike or Famous Character.

Bing was a music man, of course, so no doubt he’d have no problem appreciating the two concerts the track will present: the eclectic hip-hop group The Roots on Saturday, November 11, and the return of its popular Reggae Fest featuring Iration on Saturday, November 18.

Also on November 18, the track welcomes college students to its annual College Day where all students get in at no cost with valid college I.D. and can enjoy live music by Red Bull DJs, activities and more at the Red Star Café.

On tap the following Saturday, November 25, Del Mar brings together the best of San Diego’s buzzing beverage scene in one epic event. The day will include the Craft Beer, Cider, Cocktail & Wine Fest offering dozens of local seasonal brews, ciders, cocktails and wines to taste.
