Day at the Races 2015

DEL MAR — The familiar trumpeting of Les Kepics calling the horses to the starting gates officially signals the kickoff of the 2015 racing season at the Del Mar Racetrack.

The races continue through Sept. 7 except on Labor Day and are dark on Tuesdays. The racing season also includes a line up of live music from the Wallflowers to Ziggy Marely Aug. 1 to Weezer Sept. 6.
