Horse racing track is a special place with a unique culture around it. It is a whole day experience where you spend all your time outdoors, drink refreshing beer and cocktails, eat hotdogs, learn about the horses, make bets, and have fun! It's not a gambling event, it is a balanced sports competition with jockeys and festival fun for the crowd. It's your chance to dress up, grab a drink, and party with your friends like aristocrats!
Thrill of betting
Party time with friends
Pro Tip: Check the event calendar on the website. There are $1 days: Beer, Sodas, and Hotdogs ($2), special events, and amazing experiences that are a catch!

Santa Anita Race Track-horses♬ Face My Fears (English Version) - Hikaru Utada & Skrillex
A vibrant place to be on a weekend with friends or family. Large racetrack and facilities with meaningful history. It’s just lovely to watch a horse race out here against the beautiful backdrop (and of course place bets if that’s your cup of tea). There were some food vendors but less than I was expecting. Plenty of seating/space both indoors and out. Some lingering cigarette smoke near the track so go further out for some fresh air. Lots of parking so just follow the signs. Loved all the little details like the trimmed trees and neatly arranged courtyards. Staff was friendly and helpful. There’s a place to greet the horses too. Tickets are $10 for nonmembers going in to the club house, past the security check. Would recommend you check it out if you’re in the area!
What a tremendous day we had even though it was raining, we still had a fabulous and fantastic day looking at the horses and enjoying the day filled with great company in this beautiful place. We will be coming back very soon, hopefully it won’t be raining but if it does we will still have fun!
State Fair ENT. LA. Admission + Parking + service fee is $27.50. No advance ticket needed. No cash used in the fair. I got there on Friday. Not many people than I expect. Really good place for family and couples. Didn’t see long lines for waiting. Very safe place for fun. Parking is easy. Tripod allowed. Recommend to go
We had THE best day of our lives here. We are so glad we chose SAP for our wedding. We chose the chandelier ball room which took our breath away when Rebecca Young showed it to us. We had such ease in working with SAP. The food, the staff, the venue, everything was absolutely perfect. I cannot recommend them enough for your wedding, too.
So nice to be able to go back post-covid and enjoy this great historic horse racing park. I miss the donuts at Clockers Corner, but I love the early AM, crusty old guys, pre-computer era clientele that embrace the beautiful patio at Clockers corner, mentally processing the days racing lineup with a paper program of the day. Sadly, I'm sure some patrons succumbed to the COVID pandemic, remember them in your thoughts and prayers when you come to the races. This property should be guarded with one's life, I'm sure land developers lick their chops over their visions. Great that it is in the Registry of Historic Places certification, so that it's presence will remain on Southern California soil permanently. Amen.
