Del Mar Racing Season

Jul 16 - Sep 6, 2021

San Diego horse racing takes place where the "turf meets the surf" at the Del Mar Racetrack. Fans flock to the track each summer to wager on their favorite horses during the popular, annual Del Mar Racetrack racing season, mid-July - early-September. Be part of the magic and nostalgia of this long-time horse race tradition dating back to 1937 when Bing Crosby greeted the first guests, and Seabiscuit won by a nose in the infamous race in 1938. This season features the nation's top racehorses, trainers and jockeys, and plenty of fun in the sun.

SUP Yoga

May 9 - ongoing

Join Nicole Turner, one of San Diego's top yoga teachers, for standup paddleboard yoga!

Practicing yoga on a floating surface encourages you to use muscles that tend to be forgotten about on land, requiring more focus, which in turn calms the mind and emotions much quicker. The most basic poses and transitions are a whole new challenge!

The classes are great for all ages, beginner to more advanced, as Nicole teaches for all levels of standup paddleboarding and yoga.

You DO NOT have to get wet!

If you'd prefer to stay dry, you will have plenty of options to modify, take it easy and just relax (especially at the end for the 5min floating savasana!)
