Celebrating Del Mar's opening day is a local tradition in the greater San Diego area with big crowds taking in world-class racing and hospitality. In order to optimize the patron experience, the track limited ticket sales for opening day this year based largely on positive feedback from fans after a similar measure was put in place for last summer's opening day program and for the two recent Breeders' Cup World Championships held at the seaside facility. 

“While this is a little different from how we've approached it in the past, the feedback we received from our fans after opening day last year was overwhelmingly positive," said Del Mar chief executive officer Joe Harper. "A sell-out crowd where everyone has easier access to concessions and betting windows is the right way to get our 83rd racing season off to a strong start. We're excited by the level of fan interest and we're looking forward to the start of the summer meet." 

Reserved seating and admission for the Saturday and Sunday programs of opening weekend are available online ( or for purchase at the gates.

First post for all three days of opening weekend will be 2 p.m.
