Off to the races (Del Mar), and not sure what to wear.

I'm heading to Del Mar next weekend and will be getting the VIP treatment. I know there's a dress code at the turf club (jacket, no jeans), but I'm not sure if I should wear a suit or just a sportcoat and slacks. I've never been to Del Mar, or a track, and I'm not sure what the atmosphere is like. If I wear a navy suit, should I play it safe with a white shirt?

I went last week and they murdered a horse. This doesn't help you.

I plan on leaving my shells at home!

A navy suit is too much. Plus, you will probably be extremely hot. Del Mar is not Ascot and the Turf Club is not the Royal Enclosure. Wear a summer sport coat. If you wear a tie with it, you will be one of the five best-dressed people at the meet.

Like the other poster wrote, this isn't a fancy affair. It's San Diego! A sport jacket with a loose weave and some khakis will take you very far there. If you wear a suit you'll be sweltering and someone will probably ask you for directions. Watch the daily coverage on TVG. You won't see any of the owners wearing suits.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
