If you are one of the many people who are sad when the famous Del Mar Racetrack’s season comes to a close, have we got some news for you! This November the DMTC is proud to present the inaugural Bing Crosby Season, debuting November 7th! After a summer full of thrilling races and magical events, the club will once again be opening its doors for four weeks of elite Thoroughbred racing, exciting performances, and even more events. It’s going to be a November to remember, for sure!
About the Del Mar Bing Crosby Season
The new season at the racetrack is hearkening back to the glamorous days of the club’s beginning, back when Bing Crosby and his Hollywood friends founded the club and brought world-class horse racing to Southern California. The Bing Crosby Season will run from November 7th to the 30th, and offers a total of 15 racing days. Most races will take place Thursday through Sunday, with a post time of 12pm on weekends and 12:30pm on weekdays. There will even be racing on Thanksgiving Day, November 27th. Post time on the holiday is 11am.
Don’t Miss the Opening Day Party!
DMTC is welcoming the new season with a Gatsby-style party that pays tribute to all the glamor and excitement of the 1930s. The Opening Day party will take place on Friday, November 7th, and will include a full day of racing and fun. There will be a “Vintage Hollywood Fashion Contest” for all who attend. Awards and prizes will be given for the Best Dressed Couple, Best Old Hollywood, and Best Celebrity Lookalike, so be sure to show up in your vintage best!
Special Events Happening in November
DMTC has a whole host of special events and musical performances scheduled for the Bing Crosby Season, so be sure to mark your calendars. Not one, but two Saturday concerts are planned. On November 15th, DMTC will present Reggae Fest featuring Iration, and on November 29th, alternative rock band CAKE will help to close out the season.
If you’re a football fan, you don’t have to worry about missing a game while attending a race day, either. On Football Sundays, you can enjoy both racing and NFL games in Del Mar’s Cabana Football Lounge. Cheer on the Chargers (or your favorite team) on the multiple TV screens, and stay sated with food and drinks from the bar.
For those of you who love gourmet food trucks and craft beer, you’ll also want to make sure you attend in November. On November 22nd, DMTC will host several food trucks and will also be giving away a plush black and gold diamond blanket. There will also be a craft beer festival on November 29th, in addition to November events (get those moustaches ready) and the biggest race of the year – the Hollywood Derby. Sunday, November 30th, is closing day of the Bing Crosby Season, and admission is free all day.

Admission at all gates during Bing Crosby Season is $6 ($3 for Diamond Club members). Every Friday except Opening Day is Free & Easy for Diamond Club Members, where you’ll receive free admission, program and seat, and half price beer, sodas and hot dogs.
