Breeders’ Cup racehorses are running down a street in Del Mar–and through several nearby cities, from La Jolla to Cardiff-by-the-Sea!
These horses–fiberglass sculptures to be precise–are life size versions of the Torrie Horse used for the Breeders’ Cup Trophy. Each one has been painted by a local artist and placed along a stretch of coastal San Diego County for the upcoming event, which will be held on November 3 and 4 at the Del Mar Racetrack. The project is called Art of the Horse. There are a total of 20 statues.
You might recall I saw one of these horses being creatively painted in Balboa Park’s Spanish Village Art Center earlier this year.
I’ve spotted four more Breeders’ Cup horses racing down Camino del Mar, south of the racetrack!
