It is officially summer and that only means one thing: the Del Mar Races are in full swing. But nothing makes it more official than Opening Day at the racetracks - and on July 16, 2015 it's finally time to celebrate the opening season of the races with big hats, great weather, delicious drinks and fabulous fun. Take the day off for this Thursday event that brings together the classiest, most hilarious, most exciting characters from throughout San Diego County as more than 40,000 race fans and spectators come out to Del Mar for the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club kickoff. While the horses, their jockeys and the sponsors that back them will be on display for the rest of the summer season, Opening Day at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club is all about the fashion - makes sure you've got your party dress, colorful tie and sunscreen - it's a day that's sure to be exciting. Guests who are costume confident should be sure to participate in the annual tradition of Opening Day Hats Contest, where entrants compete for cash prizes and are judged on creativity and style. Not your scene? The fashion isn't the only thing people talk about for Opening Day at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club - enjoy great live music, racing action, and food everyone will love. If you're visiting San Diego this summer, make sure you get a chance to enjoy Opening Day on July 16 - it's the most classic, most classy, San Diego activity of the summer.
