Santa Anita Park
Santa Anita, The Great Race Place, host of the 1984 Olympic Games equestrian events, filming location of the movie Seabiscuit and a place of many famous horses, jockeys and trainers.
Sitting on the edge of the small town of Arcadia and the foothills of San Gabriel Mountains, Santa Anita Park is a fantastic place to visit, whether you are a horse racing fan or not.
You can arrive at 5 a.m. to watch morning workouts for free. Not only will you have the entire grandstand mostly to yourself but you can also get breakfast and coffee at Clockers’ Corner and spy some famous faces. And if it is a race day, well then you have the afternoon races to look forward to.
You can take the free Seabiscuit Tour for a look behind the scenes as this guided tour will take you through the barn area and a few other restricted places.
