1100 Eastshore Freeway, Berkeley, CA
This is the second opportunity to attend a Photo Day at Golden Gate Fields. I attended this event last year and had a ton of fun. There is a lot of walking around and the weather changes from morning to afternoon, so wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to hike around a good bit.
The morning portion is an orientation and a chance to shoot the morning workouts, then there was a break from about 10:30 to 1:00 when the real tour started. We were finished by about 3:30.
Note that this event is hosted by the track. TICKETS MUST BE PURCHASED FROM THE TRACK. THEY USUALLY SELL OUT, SO BUY YOUR TICKETS ASAP. THE COST IS $27.95 (INCLUDING FEES)

Whether you're a pro or an amatuer, don't miss your chance to snap photos of the morning workouts, see the horses up-close, and get an all-access pass to Golden Gate Fields.
The All-Access Photo Day Package begins with coffee and orientation between 7:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. at the historic Willie Shoemaker Winner’s Circle. Dine on a buffet breakfast, snap photos of morning workouts, and meet jockeys, trainers, and horses. Finally, gain exclusive access to snap photos in the paddock, shoot the horses as they break from the gate, and more.
The All-Access Photo Day Package includes admission and program for one, buffet breakfast, and a press credential to access morning workouts, special behind the scenes photo opportunities and the races.
