Westime Named Official Timekeeper of Del Mar Thoroughbred Club

July 16, 2012

Southern California’s most glamorous track, see the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, has announced it has acquired a Official Timekeeper in Westime.

The horseracing club is celebrating its 75th year of horse racing on July 18th.

Throughout the seven weeks of races, Westime will showcase a different “Watch of the Week” in the DMTC’s members-only Turf Club. Additionally, the top-performing jockey and trainers of the season will each win a luxury watch from Westime, which will be presented at a trackside ceremony on the final race day. Everyone following the action—at the track or by video feed—will see Westime’s logo alongside the fractional and final times of each race.

“Westime is very proud to partner with the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club,” says Westime President Greg Simonian. “Watches and horseracing have been inextricably linked for centuries–the sport even inspired watchmakers to invent new ways to track time! With our new Westime La Jolla boutique located just minutes from the iconic Del Mar track, the partnership couldn’t be more fitting,” Simonian adds.
