From the Del Mar Turf Club Media Team:
Del Mar Adjusts First Post This Friday to 3:30 P.M. PT
Del Mar has announced a change of its first post from 4 p.m. to 3:30 for this Friday, August 11.
The adjustment has been put in place with consultation from the Southern California jockey colony and with approval by the California Horse Racing Board. The shift in post time will provide for better viewing conditions – due to sunlight – for Del Mar riders.
The modification to first post on Friday, August 11 should allow the final race on the card to finish at approximately 7 p.m.
