The Del Mar Racing season has ended, and will not return until next summer. In the meantime, learn more about how you can take the Pacific Surfliner to the track for a day of fun!
The seaside Del Mar Race Track opened in 1937, with Bing Crosby (one of the founding members) personally greeting guests as they arrived. It’s also the site of a famously close Seabiscuit race. During the season, there are races every day except for Monday and Tuesday, with special activities scheduled for the weekends.
Getting to the Del Mar Racetrack is easy. Hop on the Pacific Surfliner for a beautiful trip along the coast to Solana Beach. On-board, riders ages 21 and over can start the fun early by enjoying a craft beer, Mimosa, Bloody Mary or specialty cocktail from the Café Car. After arriving at the station, catch the shuttle – it’s free for train riders and is offered on days when there are races or concerts.
Especially on weekends, the trains can get a little crowded, so consider upgrading to Business Class for a guaranteed seat and other perks.
