One of the most famous races in the world, takes place this year at one of the top racecourses in America, Santa Anita. What better way to experience this prestigious race than in sunny California; home of the rich and famous, and there’s no doubt that fame and fortune exudes at this two day, world-class event.
A trip here will tick all of the boxes for the perfect getaway before winter creeps in and you will not be disappointed with the two days of top bloodstock racing action at this $30 million extravaganza.
Enjoy a relaxing stay in a hotel of your choice only a short drive from Santa Anita, and 20 minutes from the centre of Los Angeles. You will have the exclusive chance to dine with Racing Presenter, Nick Luck at one of his favourite local restaurants.
And...if that wasn’t enough and you are feeling like a bit more of an adventure, add on a couple of nights in Sin City A.K.A. Las Vegas.
What is not to like… A once in a lifetime and must do trip for any racing fan.
