Santa Anita Park is an iconic destination set at the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, just minutes from downtown Los Angeles. For more than 80 years, the historic Southern California fixture has set the stage for the most dramatic moments in thoroughbred racing, where legendary racehorses like Seabiscuit and American Pharoah crossed the finish line into infamy. Hot off a recent $40 million renovation, the park will host the 2016 Breeders’ Cup World Championships and features new private luxury suites, spaces and a revitalized Art Deco design. In November 2016, Santa Anita will open its doors to host the 2016 Breeders’ Cup World Championships for the fourth time in five years. With style, sophistication and historic intrigue, Santa Anita offers a premier entertainment venue for spectacular events and modern celebrations imbued with the glamour and elegance of the past.Plan your visit to Santa Anita Race Park and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Arcadia itinerary planner.

Betting the ponies? Then this is your place! Nice track, easy parking, with scenic views of the mountains and surrounding area. Lots of other things nearby to do.
The race track is a nice place to spend the day. The horses are beautiful and the races are exciting. In the clubhouse area the food is very good. The waiters are getting old and are not as nice as they used to be. I would recommend going to Santa Anita Race track to spend a lovely day with the horses.
