[Comments] If you're a fashionista looking for a hot spot and a cool summer breeze, check out L'Auberge Del Mar, the super chic destination resort with a flair for the fast track. It's the place to see and be seen at the Opening Day After Party. Avid fans patiently wait all year to attend this most gala event by the sea.

"Our Opening Day After Party is always one of the most highly anticipated events of the season," said Bob Harter, director of sales and marketing. "This year promises to be even better with the addition of CLUB 1540 for guests who want to mix and mingle at the main event, but also enjoy the intimacy of a private, VIP lounge with exclusive offerings.

Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, it is known for the slogans: "Where The Turf Meets The Surf" as well as "Cool as Ever."It was built by a partnership including Bing Crosby, actors Pat O'Brien, Gary Cooper, Joe E. Brown, Charles S. Howard and Oliver Hardy.

'Opened in 1937 by Bing Crosby, the seaside track has played host to celebrities for decades, from Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz to the stars of Entourage. Unlike any other track in the nation, Del Mar is known for its sophistication, fashion and excitement of horse racing that attracts visitors from across the country looking to capture the Old Hollywood allure of the San Diego destination.' The old time links to Hollywood icons are still remembered, and each day before and after the races, you can hear Binglin' singing his favorite tune: 'Where the turf meets the surf, down at old Del Mar.' And if you're a movie buff, this is where the famous Seabiscuit became a racing legend.

In an effort to appeal to the more au courant set of younger, fashion and social media conscious fans, one of the largest draws each year for the Del Mar racetrack has now become Opening Day with their famous hats contest and parties.

Del Mar is a year round playground and the Spa L'Auberge is a petite retreat just steps from the sand. Celebrating the opening of racing season on July 17 through November, guests can indulge in a few 25 minute express spa treatments and packages including the Daily Double, Exacta and Trifecta packages. These special treats are for guests who want to step out in style while also having a healing and pampering experience.

'Our race menu will be offered from July through November and is designed to provide guests with an instant rejuvenation and energy boost,' said Leah Strohecker, spa director. 'The treatments are quick, effective and don't require any recovery time so guests don't have to miss a minute of fun at the track.'

The best part is that you don't have to wait until the racing season to soothe mind, body, and soul. Spa l'Auberge is au courant with the latest in organic and vegan product lines as well as exotic plant extracts from the special locales around the world. A visit to this petite retreat is an experience in tasteful decor, luxury and the winning ticket to rejuvenation and restoration.
