Terrace Food Court: If variety and selection are what you are looking for, may we suggest the Terrace Food Court on the mainline. It's just a few steps up from the Paddock Gardens. You can find food such as burgers and fries, chicken sandwiches, pizza and more.
Terrace Food Court is open every racing day and is located in the main Grandstand, opposite Kingsbury Fountain.
Lucky B's: If hot dogs are your thing, then get on down to the walking ring and to Lucky B's Gourmet Hot Dogs. There you'll find the classics: Chili Cheese, Foot Long, Kraut and the best authentic Chicago Dog outside the Windy City. Lucky has beers, soda and snacks too.
The Lanai Room: The Lanai Room in the Club House offers a variety of food choices every day to racing fans. The menu includes soup, jumbo hot dogs, salads, sandwiches, Philly cheese steak, rice bowls, snacks, pastries and beverages.
Carved Sandwiches: Having a carved sandwich at Santa Anita is more than a tradition for many, it is an outright necessity! While the hand-sliced corned beef is known far and wide as the best, the roast beef, turkey and ham are also personal favourites for many. With condiments and bread choices for every taste, the sandwiches from our carveries may well be the original "have it your way."
Concession Stands and Bars: Wherever you may wander, chances are you will find what you are looking for at one of our conveniently located concessions and bars. Hot dogs, pretzels, popcorn, soda, beer and cocktails are just the beginning. And don't forget a doughnut! They're made fresh right here every day.
ake your day at the races unforgettable! Sunshine, gentle breezes, and the thrill of Thoroughbred racing set the stage for a perfect day of fun. The Infield at Santa Anita Park blends Spanish flavour with Art Deco architecture by the noted Los Angelino architect Gordon B. Kaufmann. Luscious landscaping and a wealth of art and ornamental sculptures encircled with more than 1,500 trees, bowers of blooming seasonal and perennial flowers, fountains, antique sculptures, imaginative topiary designs, and lush green lawns are just some of the beautiful elements of Santa Anita.
Prizes will be awarded for best Ascot attire (male & female).
There will be a running of the CCOBS sponsored "Silver Blaze Handicap."
Participate in the quiz on "Silver Blaze."
