Witnessing a horse race is much more entertaining than witnessing a horse-fly race, which always results in all the contestants getting sidetracked by a nearby ice-cream cone. See a race through to its sweet, victorious end with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $10, you get two clubhouse tickets to a horse-racing event at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club (a $20 value). This GrouponLive deal is valid for any remaining event on the current season’s calendar, which runs until Wednesday, September 7. This deal is only valid for admission, and optional seating is available for an extra cost.
A season of high-stakes races tests the pedigrees of swift-footed steeds and the prescience of trackside bettors, with themed events hosting up to 10 mad dashes during each exciting day at the track. Bridles sprayed with hay-scented perfumes propel horses toward the finish line in frenetic races that pit pick-6 favorites against odds-defying stallions while spectators witness breathtaking photo finishes. Cocktail bars and concession stands are also conveniently located at a short galloping distance.
Themed events on nearly every day of the week pair the harrowing steeplechases with family fun days, a summer concert series, and other social amusements. Newcomers’ seminars offered on most event days offer helpful overviews of racing terminology and the foolproof strategy of always picking horses named after famous presidents.
