Del Mar Thoroughbred Club

Del Mar Thoroughbred Club held its first meet in 1937. This Hollywood hangout quickly became a fan favorite for horse racing fans and its popularity grew accordingly. In 1938, one year after Del Mar first opened its doors, the fabled Seabiscuit scored a thrilling victory “by a nose”.
