The fair brought us days of backups, and now the Horse Racing season starts to back things up for the rest of the summer. See the article from the North County Times on Del Mar racing season to add to I-5 commuter woes. Everyone should especially beware the weekends of July 28-30 and August 4-6, when the Surf Cup soccer tournament comes to the Polo Fields (El Camino Real at Via de la Valle.) I've heard about 120,000 total attendance over the two weekends, which is about 20,000 people per day. Looking at the Surf Cup website (www.surfcup.com), there will be nearly 400 teams competing, which is something like 5,000 to 6,000 kids, and their parents! So, don't think El Camino Real might be a good shortcut to bypass the horse racing traffic! And, just to make things more exciting, there are horse shows scheduled both weekends at the Del Mar Horsepark, across the street from the Polo Fields!
