Del Mar Racetrack
A Legendary Name In Del Mar Hotels, Across From The Race Track
Welcome to the Hilton San Diego / Del Mar, lovingly referred to worldwide as the spot “where the surf meets the turf.” A legendary and world-class thoroughbred horse-racing track — just across the street from our Del Mar hotel — it’s featured the finest in West Coast racing since 1937, when Bing Crosby greeted the first guests. Early on, the track established itself as a playground to the stars … including such famed celebrities as Ava Gardner, Pat O’Brien, Jimmy Durante, Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Mickey Rooney, and many more. In 1938, the famed Seabiscuit race drew 20,000 fans, and the excitement continues today as the Del Mar Racetrack now attracts over one million fans each season throughout its six-week run. As a guest of our Del Mar California hotel, you can simply walk across the street to become part of the legend. No current events are scheduled, as the racing season extends from July – September. See you at the track in July!
