Del Mar Racing ~ save some $$ at the races!

Del Mar Racing season is from July 21 - Sept 8 - have fun but please don't gamble beyond entertainment than you can afford!  Here are a couple great tips on how to save some money....

* Diamond Club Members get 1/2 price admission EVERY DAY! click the link for details

* If you are a Diamond Club Member you gotta take advantage of 'Free & Easy Wednesdays'! If you are a member = *FREE ADMISSION* FREE RESERVED SEAT * FREE PROGRAM * also half price beverages & hotdogs! (not on opening day!)

*Thursdays are 'Senior Days' - Seniors can take advantage of FREE admission, a program, & a seat - all for free!

*Fridays there will be FREE concerts after the last race (you will of course need to purchase your admission ticket - but again - if you are a Diamond Club Member it is discounted!)

*Every Saturday and Sunday during the season. From 7:30 to 9:30 a.m., trackside announcer and former jockey Jeff Bloom will provide you behind-the-scenes information while you get an up-close look at many of your favorite horses while they tune up for their next race. This event is FREE - but you will have to pay $8 for parking.  However there is a breakfast buffet for only $9.95 & if you purchase 2 you get your parking deducted - not a bad deal! Daybreak at Del Mar details here.

Oops! Missed this already! ~ * Donut Days will be July 24th & August 21st - free behind the scenes awesomeness as well as free face painting, caricatures, and other fun stuff for the kids - and oh yeah - FREE donuts, coffee, & juice!
