Visiting Southern California Racetracks

I will be in Southern California 2nd week in July 2019 and want to visit Santa Anita to see Zenyatta's statue. I know there will be no racing so what can I expect to see? I will call the track and get information but thought I would ask some on here that have been there. Also, I could go to Del Mar or Los Al, but will not have time to visit all three. Any insight will be helpful. Thank you so much.

    Early July, the Los Alamitos Derby. Generally has some very good local talent. Shared Belief in 2014, West coast in 16 or 17.
    Bob Baffert has done well with this race over the years so I'd expect to see two of his top runners.
    If not this race, I wouldn't bother with Los Al. It's not exactly a must see.
    July 17 is opening day at Del Mar. Del Mar is a must see, it's quite beautiful. A fun day at Del Mar might include a train ride down on the surfliner, racing at the track... some dinner somewhere in Solana Beach, then the train home.
