A crowd of 43,030 — the largest to attend a horse race in California this year, according to the Los Angeles Times —  showed up July 17 to bet on the ponies at Del Mar Racetrack for opening day of Del Mar Thoroughbred Club’s 2013 season. The festive atmosphere lasted well beyond the 10th and final race of the day — friends, fashions and fabulous hats were out in full force. The race season continues through Sept. 4.
