And they’re off! With that traditional call, racing starts at Del Mar Racetrack today on a non-traditional Thursday. The 75th season of thoroughbred horse racing will be accompanied on opening day with the 20th holding of the Hats Contest.
As it has for the past 61 years (since 1953!), the Old Mission Bay Athletic Club (OMBAC) is staging its annual Over-the-Line Tournament on Fiesta Island. Starting last Saturday, and continuing for a second weekend this coming Saturday, July 19, the altered, alternative beach softball competition and party is a yearly unique feature of America’s Finest City.
