Jewels of the Season

Holidays at the Timken

Glittering gems, swirls of colors, elaborate filigree, whimsical designs – it’s the Jewels of the Season: Holidays at the Timken. Since 1988 the Timken’s annual holiday tree featured the Hord & Schlappi collection of ornaments designed and handcrafted by local artists Florence Hord and Elizabeth Schlappi. Florence Hord, wife to world-renowned sculptor Donald Hord, began making ornaments in the 1930’s. In 1959, Florence invited family friend Elizabeth Schlappi to aid her efforts, and together they grew the collection to over 2,000 ornaments in the course of 80 years.

Del Mar Racing Season

Jul 18 - Sep 7, 2020

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 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.
