Traffic in Southern California is brutal in the summer and getting to the Del Mar Racetrack is not always fun. Unless you take the Pony Express! Not only will you be able to enjoy getting there (as you can drink on the coaster) but you won’t get stuck in horrible traffic. Parking at the Del Mar Racetrack is $10 for general parking or $20 for valet. There is no better way to get there (unless by limo) and the Pony Express ticket includes your admission to the races.
Every race day, after Opening Day throughout the 2013 Del Mar Racing Season July 17 – Sept. 4, you can purchase the Pony Express combination ticket for just $11, which includes Stretch Run Admission (regularly $6) and round-trip COASTER fare (regularly $11) and a free shuttle between the Solana Beach COASTER Station and the track. That’s a 35% SAVINGS! You’ll also save $10 in parking fees. The one-day ticket is valid every race day, except opening day. It also includes rides on the SPRINTER light rail and BREEZE bus service.
Making it easier than any ever before the Pony Express may be purchased in advance online, or with the new mobile app and in the ticket vending machines in every NCTD transit station by selecting the “Current Promotions” button.
