Del Mar Futurity

Another event taking place in Del Mar is the Del Mar Futurity. The thoroughbred horse race is open to all horses aged 2 or older, and is another dirt track, despite being run on turf in the 70s, and synthetic dirt more recently. The Grade 1 race features a pot worth $300,000 for its winner, which last year happened to be Bolt d'Oro, ridden by Corey Nakatani, and owned by Ruis Racing in a time of 1:22.91. That is a bit slower than the record for the event, which is 1:21.29 and was set by Declan's Moon in 2004.

Other popular races at the Del Mar Track include the Pacific Classic Stakes and the The Hollywood Derby.
