With horseracing betting being the only truly legal form of real money wagering in LA (CA), a number of horse racing tracks exist in and around the Los Angeles area. Below, we will take a look at what each of these off tracks has to offer for betting options and how enjoyable they are too frequent.
Los Angeles Horse Racing Tracks
Santa Anita Park
If you take a short, 20-minute car ride northeast of downtown LA, you will find one of the most spectacular horse racetracks in the entire United States. Santa Anita Park has been home to The Breeders' Cup five times in the last ten years. The track also hosts two of the biggest races of the season in the Santa Anita Derby and the Santa Anita Handicaps. Each of these races holds a purse of 1 million dollars! Not only are you able to place bets on the live horse races that are held daily at Santa Anita Park but you also have the option to place bets on a lot of other horse races taking place around the country.
While there are no options available for sports betting at the race track, you can place bets online with one of the online sportsbooks mentioned above. However, with the incredible weather year-round and the prestige of Santa Anita Park, taking a day trip to the track is always the best option!
Los Alamitos Race Course
If you are living in or visiting the southern side of Los Angeles, another great racetrack to place your bets at the Los Alamitos Race Course. The track is located nearly a half hour south-east of the city and takes bets on the live races going down that day. The Los Alamitos Race Course also offers bettors to place off-track bets on many other races that are taking place around the country.
