About Golden Gate Fields
Golden Gates Fields, Northern California’s premier horse racing facility, commenced its first meeting on Feb. 1, 1941. Due to poor track conditions caused by heavy rains, the inaugural meeting lasted only five days. America’s involvement in World War II meant racing at the race track wouldn’t resume for six years, and the track became a naval amphibious landing craft base.
Golden Gate Fields reopened on Sept. 9, 1947, and since has hosted many of the sports’ greatest thoroughbred horses and jockeys. The great Bill Shoemaker, who would go on to become the world’s winningest riders, scored his first career victory at Golden Gate Fields on April 20, 1949, aboard Shafter V. He retired 41 years later with 8,833 wins.
Through the years champion horses like Citation (1948 Horse of the Year), Noor (Handicap Horse of 1950), Determine (1954 Kentucky Derby winner), John Henry (Horse of the Year in 1981 and 1984), Brown Bess (Female Grass Horse of 1989), Tight Spot (Grass Horse of 1991), and Lost in the Fog (Sprinter of 2005) have competed at Golden Gate Fields.
Golden Gate Fields is a beautiful facility that features an elegant Turf Club, a vast and comfortable Club House, smart simulcast rooms, and plenty of free seating in the general admission areas, all of which make a trip to the facility one of the most entertaining San Francisco Bay Area events.
