The horse and buggy was a popular method of early transportation, far surpassing the bug and buggy, which could barely move and was often destroyed by squeamish gunslingers. Glimpse more visually appealing transportation with today's GrouponLive deal to Santa Anita Park in Arcadia. Today's deal is valid for one race day between October 2 and November 6, excluding November 4 and November 5. Tickets may be picked up at the box office the day of the event.

Santa Anita Park thrills visitors with breathtaking scenery and warp-speed steeds, which gallop around its racetrack in a quest for fame, fortune, and a lifetime supply of oats. Instead of paying friends to ride rocking horses in the backyard, fans can witness equine events from box seats located near the finish line. Box seats do not have a dress code, allowing guests to don jeans, tracksuits, or mare-luring carrot costumes. Visitors can place wagers and admire the curve of the ovular track's first turn at the adjacent clubhouse, then load up on hot dogs, popcorn, and donuts made fresh at the park (wagers and food not included in today's deal). Hit Paddock Gardens to watch the jockeys prep for the races, or stop by Clockers' Corner to see the horses' morning workout of sprints and jumping jacks.
Themed promotions pepper the season's calendar, including $1 beer and snacks on October 10 and Family Fun Day each Sunday, where kids can coast down an inflatable slide and meet the horse that starred in Seabiscuit. Parents can turn other race days into family outings by enjoying Santa Anita's picnic areas and exploring its playground before enjoying lunches from feedbags.
Children 17 and younger receive free admission to regular-season races when accompanied by a parent, and seniors 62 and older receive free admission on Thursdays, though seats are not included in the free admission. Arcadia residents receive free clubhouse admission for Arcadia Day on Friday, September 30.
