“Del Mar is a fantastic partner in hosting the World Championships, showcasing the highest levels of international Thoroughbred racing while providing a tremendous hospitality experience,” said Drew Fleming, President & CEO of Breeders’ Cup Limited. “We look forward to our domestic and international fans returning to the San Diego area in a celebration of all the community and the World Championships have to offer.”

To further elevate the experience for all fans and participants, Breeders’ Cup and Del Mar will invest more than $5 million to create new seating areas and expanded hospitality offerings. This investment will include the construction of a luxury chalet that will provide approximately 700 premium dining seats, the addition of more than 1,000 temporary box seats, and enhanced culinary activations around Del Mar.

Curtis Stone, a Michelin-starred chef and world-renowned restaurateur, author, and media personality, will again create a world-class culinary experience for premium dining areas at the World Championships after partnering with the Breeders’ Cup in 2023 to rave reviews.

Owner of the critically acclaimed Gwen and Maude restaurants in Los Angeles and Woodend by Curtis Stone at Maroma, a Belmond Hotel in the Riviera Maya, Stone will return to work on-site with his team to curate innovative offerings for guests arriving from around the world. Stone’s cuisine will be offered in select Clubhouse and Stretch Run premium dining areas.

The 2017 debut of the Breeders’ Cup at Del Mar resulted in a record-breaking, two-day on-track wagering mark, while the World Championships generated a record $97 million in economic impact for San Diego County. The 2021 edition, conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic, set a wagering record for the World Championships while permitting fans to return in limited numbers with appropriate health measures in place.

In accordance with a longstanding commitment by Breeders’ Cup Limited to delivering a curated and intimate fan experience, Breeders’ Cup and Del Mar officials are working to ensure optimal seating offerings for all attendees, while maintaining an intimate fan experience and ensuring maximum safety and comfort. With attendance capped at 37,500, fans are encouraged to acquire tickets early as demand is expected to be high.  

All on-site parking at Del Mar will be sold in advance. On-site parking options are limited and will sell out quickly, so attendees are encouraged to purchase as soon as possible. Pricing ranges from $50 per pass on Friday to $75 per pass on Saturday, depending on the lot location. A dedicated ride-share lot will be available for patrons over the weekend, with a park and ride shuttle program also returning for patrons who choose to park off-site. Additional details will be released this summer. For more information, please visit BreedersCup.com/Transportation.
