Opening Day

Dust off your wildest hat, grab your best suit and join us for Opening Day at Del Mar on Wednesday, July 18th. This day is not only about big bets and fast horses, but celebrating the season in style.

Make sure to put your best hat forward and participate in the famous Opening Day Hats Contest tradition where constants can enter to win cash prizes. 


Wednesday, July 18
 Gates Open 11:30 AM
 First Race 2:00 PM
 Hat Contest Entries Close 3:00 PM

With the continued popularity of our four Trackside Restaurants, Opening Day tables are sold by lottery in April before the ticket office opens for the season.

All remaining seating & admissions will be available for purchase when the ticket office opens Friday, May 11th at 10:00 AM (PST).
