Amazing Race!

| October 25, 2011 | Parties

THE PARTY The Turf Club teemed with excited fans (and show ponies aplenty) for Del Mar’s biggest purse race of the season: the Pacific Classic, sponsored by Riviera. THE HIGHLIGHTS In the million-dollar race, the horse Acclimation held off Twirling Candy, a 2-1 favorite and son of former Pac Classic winner Candy Ride. How sweet it wasn’t. THE SEASON In its 72nd year, Del Mar lured record-breaking crowds to its opening day with a whopping 46,588 race enthusiasts. The daily average: 17,844 thirsty fans, as the Del Margaritas never stopped flowing throughout the 37-day season. Until next year! Photography by Tim King
