12:30 to 5 p.m., Del Mar Thoroughbred Club
And they’re off! For the second time this year, the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club is opening its racetracks. Del Mar Fall Racing season kicks off at 11:30 a.m. on Friday and will, on most days, have a first post time of 12:30 p.m. during its four-week run through Dec. 2. Admission to the seaside tracks start at $6. This season, the tracks are hosting plenty of special events to coincide with the races, like an Uncorked Derby Days Wine Fest on Nov. 17, a Craft Beer Fest on Dec. 1 and much more. The reggae band Pepper will hold a post-race concert this Saturday to ticket holders who enter the tracks before the last race starts. Those not attending the races can purchase a ticket separately for $30.
