Next week, I’ll Have Another will attempt to net the Triple Crown at Belmont Stakes – a feat over 30 years in the making. The excitement surrounding I’ll Have Another’s victories at the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes earlier this year, combined with the Belmont buzz, is expected to spill over into this year’s Del Mar racing season. According to the Daily Racing Forum, last year’s opening day at Del Mar drew a record-breaking 46,588 spectators: and this year, the July 18 event promises to be even bigger and more exciting than before.

With stunning scenery and a consistently stellar racing lineup, the Del Mar races attract enthusiasts from around the world. Every summer, people travel to San Diego from all corners of the globe: and while this means good news for the local hospitality industry, it also encourages some visitors to consider growing roots closer to the track in the form of a San Diego vacation home.
