Fall Meet Begins At Del Mar Racetrack

The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club's second consecutive fall meet begins Thursday, with 20 days of racing through Nov. 29 at Del Mar — five days more than last year.

While the summer first post is usually at 2 p.m., races during the Bing Crosby Meet will begin at 12:30 p.m. most days.

Races on the Del Mar track will begin at 12:45 p.m. Friday and Saturday because of the Breeders' Cup. The Breeders' Cup races will be shown on the track's television sets, with racing on Del Mar's track held between the Breeders' Cup races beginning at 12:45 p.m.


Racing will begin at 11 a.m. on Thanksgiving.

The 50-cent Trifecta will make its California debut Thursday. Those betting are required to select the first three finishers in a race in order. It had been previously offered at the $1 level. The Trifecta will be offered on every race on every card.

General admission is $6. Reserve seating costs an additional $8 Thursday and Saturdays, $6 on Sundays and $4 on Fridays and the meet's other Thursdays. General parking is $10.
