Photography Day

Photography Day
Join Us Sunday April 23 7:30 am - 5:00 pm
There are few places in the Southland more picturesque than Santa Anita Park. With the magnificent San Gabriel Mountains serving as a daily backdrop, The Great Race Place is always full of photographic possibilities.

Join Santa Anita Park on Sunday, April 23 for a day especially made for the eye of the *beholder.

Photographers of every skill level will enjoy a full day at the races, beginning in the early morning hours at the renowned Clockers’ Corner and continuing on into an afternoon of racing.
