Make sure you look at the map before you go. We got lost. Took the Santa Anita exit from the 210, but then couldn't find the entrance to the track and drove a mile past. Weren't sure how to find the parking entrance as it was on the East end of the facilities. Should have gotten off at the next exit.Cal Phil at the Race Track travel • Sep 21 2014 star this tip starred
This might be because we arrived after the concert started, but there was no event staff directing us to the parking location. There were signs that read "concert parking" which later turned into signs that read "Cal Phil". $15 parking.Cal Phil at the Race Track travel • Aug 26 2014 star this tip starred

It was the first time in over 35 years that I'd been to Santa Anita, so I was really looking forward to seeing the horses run again. I loved the crowds excitement, and I got a chill when I saw the horses in motion...they're really beautiful when they're in motion.
The Goldstar booth (table) was at the East Entrance, so we had to walk quite a way from the South Entrance. I think Goldstar really needs to add another table, and mark it Goldstar, like they had at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire. We had to search awhile to find it, and ask a couple of the race track's employees too.
We should have been given a red ticket at the 'booth', which would entitle us to a T-shirt apiece, but we were told later that they'd run out of shirts, and we didn't get one until we left the park and saw a table at the entrance which was giving them out.
My only real gripe is that the Goldstar ad for this event stated that the admission price (at the door) was $20.....this was not true...entry price at the door is $5, so $10 was misleading (plus $3.75 / ticket service fee). The package did include the T-shirt, 2 beers, and a program, so all-in-all a good deal.
And I had excellent company...Blake...who gave me his arm going up and down ramps, and was very pleasant the whole afternoon. And, I didn't have to listen to John bitch every few minutes, or go on and on about his expert knowledge of horses.
