Del Mar Thoroughbred Club Statement Concerning Incident on Fairgrounds Sunday

We are aware of an ongoing San Diego Sherriff’s Department investigation into an incident on the Del Mar Fairgrounds today in advance of a concert featuring the artist Ice Cube.

As is our special events protocol, substantial law enforcement and private security was on site in anticipation of the event. In light of the circumstances that unfolded involving one individual with a gun, we take consolation in the fact that no patrons, officers or security personnel were injured in the incident.

We also are thankful for the work and training our personnel have done with the Sherriff’s Department regarding possible active shooter incidents.

We will continue to fully cooperate with the Sherriff’s Department in their investigation and will refer all questions concerning the incident to them.

Del Mar’s final day of racing will begin at 2 p.m. tomorrow as scheduled.
