For nearly seventy five years, summertime at Del Mar Racetrack has been a place for fun and entertainment, a place, as Eddie Read said, where nobody's in a hurry but the horses." Since its founding by Bing Crosby and his Hollywood friends in 1937, Del Mar has hosted some of thoroughbred racing's finest: from dancing Zenyatta and scrappy Seabiscuit to San Diego's own hall-of-famers Best Pal and Azeri. In this collection of vignettes, celebrated turf writer and San Diego sports journalist Hank Wesch recalls noted jockeys, infamous matchups, and the best of Del Mar."

About the Author:

Hank Wesch completed a nearly fifty-year career as a newspaper sportswriter with his retirement in September 2010. The last thirty-six years of that career were spent at the San Diego Union-Tribune, where his assignments included covering horse racing, and the Del Mar summer thoroughbred race meeting, specifically, starting in 1985. He has been published in several newspapers and magazines, but this is his first book project.
