Santa Anita Handicap day is one of the biggest events of the year at Santa Anita Park. While the older horses are competing for the $1-million dollar purse in the Big ‘Cap, the younger 3-year-olds are looking to establish themselves on the road to the Triple Crown in the San Felipe Stakes. It’s a great day of racing and when you cash a winning bet at the track make sure to keep you eyes peeled because you might bump into a few celebrities.


Recording artist Robin Thicke brought out a group of friends and kids to enjoy the Great Race Place a few weeks ago.


Thicke’s group of friends included model April Love Geary.


When he went to Santa Anita, actor Wilmer Valderrama was spotted taking a picture with the Seabiscuit statue in the paddock.


Wilmer was also joined by recording artist Demi Lovato during the trip.
