Pleasanton Horse Racing

Don't miss exciting Pleasanton horse racing.

Experience the thrill and excitement of Pleasanton horse racing, an event that offers a chance to enjoy Alameda County's best culture and atmosphere. The Alameda County Fair horse racing and Cal racing events have been scheduled and are now in full swing.

For more than 75 years, betting on Pleasanton horse racing has been a way of life for those in the East Bay. That rich tradition has since earned Pleasanton the moniker "the birthplace of horse racing in California,"and it’s also home to the oldest race track in the country.

The oval is where the Alameda County Fair takes place, and if you're looking to attend this event in style, the Trackside Terrace is the place to be. Here, you can enjoy VIP seating close to the action and access to a premium buffet. There's also the Palm Pavilion, available for those who like music, great food and an incredible view of the race.

The Pleasanton race track has undergone quite a transformation in the past few years, with areas increased in size and enhanced for attendees' added comfort. Both the Turf Terrace and the winner's circle have been doubled, and, in the latter case, turned around so that those in the grandstand can experience the up-close thrills of a racing victory.

For lodging, book your stay at the Marriott Pleasanton, our upscale hotel offers visitors comfort and relaxation after a day of cheering from the grandstands. Enjoy a refreshing dip in our on-site pool or an invigorating workout in our fully equipped fitness center. When you want to enjoy exciting events in Pleasanton, the Marriott Pleasanton is the place to stay.
