Icons

Cars that Drove Our Imagination

Icon: A person or object that is revered. Iconic vehicles set new standards in technology,
design, and popularity, inspiring deep feeling and esteem in their adherents.
In some cases, a vehicle becomes iconic for its accessibility, affordability, reliability and
endearment to the masses. The Volkswagen Bug, for example. Certain models are etched in
the public psyche for what they brought to the industry. The Porsche 356, Chevy Corvette, and
the Ford Mustang are such vehicles. Pop culture movies, books, and television also generate
icons. Steve McQueen’s 1968 Mustang from the movie Bullitt and the custom “Captain
America” Harley Davidson Chopper from the movie Easy Rider, for example.

Del Mar Racing Season

Jul 17 - Sep 2, 2019

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 Thoroughbred Club 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 race horses, trainers and jockeys, and plenty of fun in the sun.

The races run five days weekly, except Monday and Tuesday.

Horse racing at Del Mar happens Wednesday through Sunday, with post time for the first race on most days at 2:00 PM. On Fridays first post is 4:00 PM.
