This year’s Hats, Heels, & Hooves will once again be a glitzy, glamorous, and fantastically fun soiree, our impeccable pool terrace and Azalea lawn evoking the spirit of a Kentucky Thoroughbred farm as guests and Del Mar jockeys rub shoulders and celebrate a brand-new season at the venerable racetrack.

Del Mar & the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe: A Prestigious Tag Team

The glamorous spread of the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe makes the perfect spot to celebrate the 2017 horseracing season at Del Mar, established back in 1937 with real Tinseltown pedigree: Bing Crosby and Gary Cooper were among the track’s founding partners.

Hats, Heels, & Hooves is one of our signature events here at the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe, and the sort of Southern California gala you really don’t want to miss. Combine your night of wining, dining, socializing, and people-watching with a stay at our historic resort, and you’ll be steeping yourself in the kind of luxurious ambience and high-end pleasure more associated with the golden days of Old Hollywood.
