Del Mar Offers New Take on Daybreak Breakfasts

Del Mar logo

For its 14th season at the track, the popular “Daybreak at Del Mar” will offer a new take on trackside breakfasts-with-the-Thoroughbreds at the place “where the turf meets the surf.”

The Saturday and Sunday gatherings, presented in the Clubhouse Terrace Restaurant just past the finish line at Del Mar, run from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. throughout the meet, which opens this year on Wednesday, July 17.

The unique experience of watching the track’s flashy, four-legged athletes going through their morning exercises while enjoying breakfast in the sunshine and sea breezes that are part of the track’s environment is special indeed.

This summer’s dining bill of fare has changed to a morning Marketplace. Now “Daybreakers” can mix, match and select their own breakfasts, similar to their favorite on-the-go restaurants and coffee bars, all priced a la carte.

Breakfast goers will be able to choose from a delicious and healthy menu assortment. Among the items will be fresh-squeezed juice, hot and cold coffees and teas, yogurts, granola bars, fruit cups, fresh local baked goods, cereals and an assortment of hot breakfast sandwiches, made to order. Additionally, there will be a bar serving the Del Mar signature Del Mary, as well as the new Café Del Cool. A split of champagne also will be available to compliment the fresh-squeezed orange juice. 

Jeff Bloom, a former rider who now is an owner and stable manager, is on hand each morning and strolls through the area to provide background and informational tips on horses galloping on the track, take questions about the sport and provide suggestions on how to enjoy a day at the races.

“Daybreak” attendees are encouraged to park in the track’s main lot off Jimmy Durante Blvd. and go through the Clubhouse entrance to the restaurant on the second floor. There is no charge for attending the sessions, but there is a $10 parking fee upon arrival. However, anyone spending $25 or more on breakfast items will have the cost of the parking fee subtracted from their bill.

Del Mar’s 74th summer session runs until Wednesday, September 4. First post most days is 2 p.m. with the exception of Fridays with its 4 p.m. racing start.
