Set against the backdrop of the San Gabriel Mountains, gorgeous Santa Anita Park is the perfect setting for an outdoor concert series. Settle in on the lawn or at tables, eat a home-prepared picnic meal or something delicious from the park, and take in a concert under the stars. California Philharmonic has a gorgeous series in store for this summer, including a concert of majestic film scores, a night of Western frontier music, and much more. Come early for pre-concert activities with the family. Or make it a date night and indulge in the gourmet dining and full bar offerings. With a state-of-the-art stage, jumbo video screens, and the masterful music of maestro Victor Vener and the Cal Phil, an evening at Santa Anita Park is must-do summer fun. Learn More
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.
