Starting on opening day Friday, Sept. 25, licensed owners with a horse entered may attend the races at Santa Anita. Due to COVID-19, space is limited to two licensed owners per horse.

Owners wishing to attend should email Mary Forney, Executive Director of TOC ([email protected]) to be put on a reservation list each day. Reservations can be made up until 24 hours before race day. For more information, contact her at (626) 826-3782.

The quickest and safest way to access Santa Anita Park is to apply for a Virtual Badge before you arrive at the track. Once your badge is approved remotely, enter through Gate 8 and show your badge to the Association Gate attendant. After you park in the Owner/Trainer lot, go straight to the temperature check and wristband tent to receive your complimentary box. For instructions on accessing the Virtual Badge, click here.

Owners must adhere to the following safety protocols while at Santa Anita Park:
-Masks must be worn at all times unless you are eating or drinking in your box.
-Maintain a social distance of six feet from others.
-Stay on pathways and within the box and apron area.

Licensed owners may come see their horses work between 5:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. at Clocker’s Corner.
