Del Mar, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Historic Del Mar Racetrack will have two separate race meets in 2014. The San Diego track will conduct its normal summer meet followed in November with a second meeting.
"Our fall race meeting starting this year will be totally separate from our summer session," noted Del Mar Thoroughbred Club president and CEO Joe Harper. "They will be two different animals. We know our summer meet is a winner; we've proven it over and over again. And we expect our autumn run can be special, too, in its own way. With the backing of our horsemen and all our many racing fans in the San Diego area, we think we can put on a first-rate show here in the fall and help to keep racing in Southern California strong and successful."
The summer meet will open on Thursday, July 17 and go until Wednesday, Sept. 3. The track's November meet will be 15 days beginning Friday, Nov. 7 and concluding Sunday, Nov. 30.
