Join us for the Breeders' Cup, Santa Anita 2019!
A trip to the Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita is surely a bucket list event for any horse racing enthusiast. Combine this with the Californian sunshine, a direct flight from London and the endless possibilities to extend your trip exploring The Golden State – it’s not one to be missed!
Santa Anita is known as the ‘home’ of the Breeders’ Cup, with the 2019 running being the 10th held at this location. It’s not hard to work out why, with Santa Anita set against the picturesque San Gabriel Mountains, making for a stunning setting when sat in the Grandstand viewing the racing. The sheer size of the racecourse – approximately 85,000 - is a sight to behold and when all those avid racegoers are cheering the noise is deafening! During the races you will be comfortably seated on the ground floor of the Clubhouse: the newly renovated dining area that commands views of the first turn and the finish line. You’ll enjoy a gourmet luncheon and access to the cash bar, to keep you refreshed during the day.
For the duration of the races you will stay in the city of Pasadena just 16km outside of Los Angeles. Pasadena has many bars and restaurants and allows you to be close to the action without too much of the hustle and bustle of downtown. A taxi or metro ride gets you into LA quite quickly, where you can stroll Rodeo Drive or visit the Walk of Fame. We especially recommend popping in to the Beverly Wilshire for a drink or two in the BLVD Lounge.
When not exploring LA or racing at Santa Anita, why not take a trip to Santa Monica? Just an hour away from Pasadena, this calm coastal city makes a refreshing change of pace from the centre of LA.
