Protocol for Owners Attending the Races at the Del Mar Fall Meet

For the Del Mar Fall meet, which begins Saturday, Oct. 31, all CHRB licensed owners will be permitted on track for both morning workouts and afternoon races every day of the Fall meet. Unfortunately, due to state and local guidelines, non-licensed guests are still not permitted. Owners wishing to attend the races should email or call Mary Forney, Executive Director of TOC ( to secure access, and reservations can be made up until 24 hours before race day. To attend morning workouts, no advanced reservation is required.

On race days, owners must show their license when entering the Del Mar Race Track and park in the designated area just outside the clubhouse. Owners will enter through the gate on the east side of the track across from the receiving barn (same gate as the summer). Owners will be required to be on the owner reservation list, provide their CHRB owners license, and undergo a full Covid-19 health screening including a temperature check. Masks will be required to be worn at all times, and owners must respect social distancing guidelines.

On non-race days owners attending morning workouts must use the vehicle gate adjacent to the fire-station off Jimmy Durante Blvd.

The first come, first served seating is located in the spacious clubhouse box seat area. At this time, owners must remain in the clubhouse seating area and may not enter the paddock or the winners circle. Owners are still not permitted to access the backstretch. Any violation of this strict policy will result in a forfeiture of racetrack privileges. If you have any questions, feel free to contact TOC Executive Director Mary Forney at (626) 826-3782.
