Horses and Metrolink trains, oh my

Starting this week, you might see some horses on Metrolink trains. A new train car decorated with a vinyl display of six thoroughbred horses will be traveling across the Metrolink system. The newly-wrapped car is a result of a partnership between Metrolink and Breeders’ Cup Ltd. to promote the return of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships to Santa Anita Park and encourage the use of public transportation to go to the event on November 2 and 3.

The Breeders’ Cup wrapped passenger car will appear on trains on the San Bernardino, Burbank-Bob Hope Airport and Orange County lines. For details on Metrolink schedules and connections to other transit systems the weekend of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, visit Metrolink’s website after October 10.

Metrolink connects with Metro Rail at Union Station, and many Metrolink stations are also served by Metro buses.

  1. Speaking of horses… does anyone know if Metrolink is running trains past Oceanside to Solana Beach for the Del Mar races? I know they did last year / have in the past, but haven’t seen anything about it this season.

    • Hi Steve,

      As of now it doesn’t seem like they’re going to do it this year, but I’ll keep checking with Metrolink and update if there’s any change!
