“Chargers Day at Del Mar,” a celebration of the team’s rich history in San Diego keyed around the team’s former players paying tribute to their faithful fans, will be held Saturday, July 22 at the seaside track.
Several dozen past and current Chargers players have signed on for an afternoon of festivities that will include winner’s circle salutes, photo and autograph sessions, video clips and photos centered on the team’s 56-year run in the community. All the “Lightning Bolt” activity will add special zest to a full afternoon of high-class racing that will feature a pair of major events, the Eddie Read Stakes and the TVG San Diego Handicap, with the latter race a possible target for the horse currently considered the best in the world, Arrogate.
YWCA of San Diego County will present the 10th annual “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®” fundraising walk.
