Del Mar National Horse Show coming to fairgrounds

In its 66th year, the 2011 Del Mar National Horse Show will run Thursday, April 21, through Sunday, May 8, at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

Consisting of three distinctly different equestrian disciplines — Western, Dressage, and Hunter/Jumper — the Del Mar National represents the best in competitive opportunities for serious equestrians, and is unrivaled in its entertainment appeal for everyone.

Each week of competition features its own signature Saturday Night Event:

During Western Week, April 21 through 24, the “Night of the Horse” on Saturday, April 23, highlights a spectacular showcase of horsemanship from the courageous to the comedic, performed by an elite cadre of the most highly respected equestrian entertainers in the world. World-renowned entertainer Tommie Turvey once again brings his “Amazing Horses,” featuring Poker Joe and Joker, to the Del Mar National Horse Show’s “Night of the Horse.” Tommie and his horses have been seen in blockbuster movies such as “Jonah Hex”, “Batman: Dark Knight” and the television series, “The Walking Dead.”

Admission is free on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Reserved seats for weeknight and weekend daytime performances are $10 for grandstand seating and $23 for box seats (subject to availability). Grandstand tickets are $18 for each Saturday evening highlight event, and are on sale NOW through www.ticketmaster.com, or the Del Mar Fairgrounds Box Office. Call the box office at 858-792-4252 or stop by the Fairgrounds, Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. to buy tickets at the Durante Gate Box Office
