“For more than 75 years, Hollywood Park has been one of Thoroughbred racing’s most treasured venues, hosting the sport’s biggest names, from Seabiscuit to Zenyatta, Shoemaker to Pincay, Whittingham to Frankel. The track’s closure is a major loss not only for the Southern California circuit but also those who live and work at Hollywood Park. We commend California racing for its plan to redistribute Hollywood Park’s live racing dates at Santa Anita, Del Mar and Los Alamitos with minimum disruption to horsemen and fans alike.”
