Opening day at the Del Mar Race Track races means cocktails, mingling, and all the best dressed hats in Southern California.
Hats, hats and more hats. That is all you will see about the Del Mar Racetrack today. There is even a contest today at during the opening day festivities for the best hat, and these women take it serious! You’ll see plenty of hats, tight dresses, and women getting their heels stuck in the dirt in the parking lot… and the grass at the entryway. Please be careful ladies.
If you cannot make it to Del Mar for Opening Day at the racetrack hold your own festivities at home! Get a great big hat, and bedazzle as you wish. On an episode of The Girls Next Door Bridget Marquardt hot glued my little ponies to her hat. It was perfect!
You can also watch the races on cable at home. Yes, there is a cable channel for horse racing. Why not gather the friends around, bring your hats, and watch the races. If you can’t watch the races, rent some old movies like National Velvet, Yankee Doodle Dandy, Seabiscuit, or Secretariat.
You can also mix up some horse race themed cocktails!
