Field sizes are limited because of the narrowness of the turf course. I see the rail is at 14 feet. Maximum field at any distance on the turf is 10.
The turf course would need to be redone if Del Mar were ever to host the Breeders' Cup.

That $1 million or so would more than pay for itself over time, and if money could be found to somehow expand the main track to at least 1 1/16 Miles and the turf to 15/16ths (allowing for more rail placements and a chute that would permit races up to 1 3/16 Miles that are not around three turns), it would be well worth the cost to do so since such would allow for larger fields that big bettors love.

Unless Del Mar puts in a heliport it'd be a traffic nightmare. And people would be crammed in so tight that the horses would be the only ones able to freely move about.
If wishes were horses then beggars would ride-
& If dirt were dollars we'd all be in the black
