Santa Anita is a very nice racetrack in an absolutely wonderful setting! It does show it's age a bit & could use a bit of an update to seating but go! It's large & lovely!

Went for Gold Cup and had a nice table at the finish line in the Frontrunner. Great service and good food and drink, Walked around as the history in front of the paddock and grandstand is very special.

Great way to spend an hour or two. Free. Entry, High Priced Beers and low wagering make this place a worthwhile visit! Taking a close look at the horses do not give a positive insight as to their condition!! Definite concerns on what horse to...More

Best to give them a call, they were excellent with customer service on site, I'm sure they will be on the call as well.
Will there be racing in November 2017? I can't tell from the website calendar. Thanks.

Parking's about $4. You pay about $5 to get in and then you have free access to most of the grandstand and the infield.
