Southern California has some of the finest race tracks in the country. Santa Anita Racetrack in Arcadia was used in filming the movie, Seabiscuit. Hollywood Park in Inglewood has both a world class horse racing track as well as a respected casino. Del Mar near San Diego is located along the coast. I've been fortunate enough to see horse racing at Santa Anita, Hollywood Park and Del Mar and I enjoy differnent aspects of each location. I've really enjoyed seeing Gary Stevens both at Santa Anita and at Hollywood Park. Santa Anita became a huge part in the history of female riders in 2003. Santa Anita hosted The 20th Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships in 2003. Julie Krone, aboard Halfbridled in the $1 million Juvenile Fillies, became the first female jockey to win a Breeders' Cup race. At Del Mar we saw a tremendous horse called Running Rene. One nice feature at these tracks is satellite wagering. This means even if the horses are at a different location you can bet on them from your favorite track.
