The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club's fall racing meet will be highlighted by 14 stakes races worth $1.95 million. Nine of the 14 stakes are graded events, including the Nov. 30 GI Hollywood Derby and the Dec. 1 GI Matriarch S. Both races are worth $300,000 this year.

“We think our fall meet has found a good groove now, not only in California, but with horsemen across the country,” said Del Mar's executive vice president of racing Tom Robbins. “Interest in our overall schedule in general and our stakes races in particular has resonated with both our locals and major outfits as far away as New York and Kentucky. We're expecting a steady fall session with some highlight racing adding a special pizzazz to it all.”

The stakes program also includes a pair of Grade II races, the $200,000 GII Hollywood Turf Cup to be run Nov. 28 and the $200,000 GII Seabiscuit H. to be run Nov. 30.

The 15-day Bing Crosby Season runs from Nov. 8 through Dec. 1.
