Glamorous Hollywood history and modern horseracing combine at this legendary racetrack located "where the turf meets the surf.". In Short The track, which opened in 1937, is rich with history--home of the famous Seabiscuit-Ligaroti race, and playground for old-Hollywood's elite--and scenic beauty. The classic, Spanish-style architecture is surrounded by well-manicured lawns and vibrant flowers. Seating options range from budget grandstand seats to luxury skyboxes. In addition to usual concessions, the Clubhouse Terrace Restaurant offers track-side dining, with high-end lunch fixings. Large groups and families opt for the infield, with pack-in picnics and a casual party atmosphere.
