The Del Mar summer racing season starts afresh this Thursday with the traditional first stakes of the summer season in the $100,000, Oceanside Stakes, for 3yo turfers at 1-mile over the Del Mar turf course.
* Of special note this year, don’t look for the old all-weather main track any longer at Del Mar as it was replaced over the off-season with a brand new (Dirt) surface leaving only Golden Gate as the lone remaining major California thoroughbred racing venue to offer All-Weather racing over its main track.
