Rules & Regulations
|Auction House Policy
Pursuant to the stall agreement, Trainers & connections found to have directly or indirectly participated in the transport of any horse from Del Mar, or associated training facility, to either a slaughterhouse or an auction house engaged in selling horses for slaughter shall be prohibited from any allotment or use of stalls at Del Mar or other off-track stabling facilities over which Del Mar exercises control or indirectly funds.
Pursuant to the agreement between the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and the California Thoroughbred Trainers, the terms & conditions of stabling at Del Mar have been updated.
Consistent with California State Law which prohibits smoking at public facilities, DMTC has instituted a NO SMOKING policy in several areas, including barns, stalls or shedrows. In the interest of accommodating the safety and comfort of all patrons, smokers will be asked to refrain from smoking (including electronic cigarettes) in all indoor areas, outdoor seating, and aprons, concert area during concerts, and eating areas including all restaurants. Smoking is permitted only in designated outdoor areas where seating is not provided (except for the Horsemen’s Lounge terrace) including paddock viewing areas, Clubhouse and Stretch Run entry plazas and south-facing patios.
Conservation is an important aspect of our daily living here in California and we have a responsibility to conserve our natural resources and ensure that hazardous materials do not enter our water systems. Barns that fail to follow the rules will be reported to CHRB stewards and violation of rules will result in fines/citation(s) and disciplinary action. We thank you for your cooperation.
