By purchasing Breeders’ Cup ticket(s) you accept that they are a revocable license, subject to termination at the discretion of Los Angeles Turf Club, Incorporated and Breeders’ Cup Limited at “Santa Anita Park,” with denial of admission or removal from the facility, without compensation, should the ticket holder act in a disorderly manner or violate the management’s rules or regulations.

Santa Anita Park reserves the right to search all persons, bags, boxes and/or other containers and to refuse admission or to eject any person refusing such procedures or where such search produces contents or items deemed unlawful, dangerous, obnoxious or prohibited by Santa Anita Park. Patrons may not bring liquor, bottles, balloons, umbrellas, weapons or items which Santa Anita Park deems unlawful, dangerous, or obnoxious onto the premises. All patrons, regardless of age, must have ticket to gain access to seated areas. Children seventeen (17) and younger receive free General Admission with a paid General admission access adult. Children seventeen (17) and younger receive free Clubhouse General Admission with a paid Clubhouse General Admission access adult. No person who has been ruled off any sanctioned course can be admitted. Expulsion forfeits all tickets, and the holder thereof waives all claims against Santa Anita Park and Breeders’ Cup Limited by reason of the same.
