The Del Mar Racer
July 29, 2017
Greetings race fans!Here's a chance to combine two wonderful pleasures... horse racing and exciting vintage rail travel. Please join us as we make railroad tracks... to the horse track.
Our train runs like a thoroughbred as it opens up reaching speeds of 90 mph. After San Juan Capistrano, the train skirts the inlets, sloughs and beautiful beaches of the mighty Pacific.
Departure from Los Angeles is at 9:55am (you may board at many Amtrak stations along the route, please call for info) with arrival at Solana Beach at 12:01pm.
With arrival at Solana Beach (the station stop for the race track) you'll transfer to the waiting "British Double Decker Buses" for free shuttle service to the famed Del Mar Race Track (founded in 1937 by Bing Crosby) where "the surf meets the turf"! You'll have plenty of time to test your luck until train time once again at 7:22pm.
While we journey home, you'll enjoy hor d'oeuvres, dessert and drinks while you savor the events of the day with your traveling companions, arriving back in LA at 9:35pm.
Fare: $149.00 per person and includes roundtrip transportation by vintage PRIVATE train cars, brunch and beverages southbound and hor d'eouvres, dessert and 2 drinks northbound (choice of beer, wine or mixed drinks). Admission to the track and all wagers are on your own!
If you have a group and would like exclusive occupancy or a date of your choice, please contact us for specific information.
