SANTA ANITA PARK SEEKING BREEDERS’ CUP VOLUNTEERS; GREAT RACE PLACE TO HOST TWO DAY WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS ON OCT. 31 & NOV. 1

ARCADIA, Calif. (Sept. 8, 2014)–Santa Anita Park, which will host the Breeders’ Cup World Championships for an unprecedented third consecutive year on Oct. 31 & Nov. 1, is seeking volunteers from the local community to help accommodate the needs of the many thousands of visitors that are anticipated over the two days at The Great Race Place.

            Volunteers are needed to assist in a variety of patron services:  Greeting racing fans as they enter the track’s grounds, escorting horse owners from their seats to and from the Paddock, staffing various areas to answer questions and provide directions, coordinating traffic arrangements and staffing the Breeders’ Cup Press Center.

            While an interest in horse racing and familiarity with Santa Anita Park are not required, they would be helpful.  Volunteers should be prepared to attend a Volunteer Orientation one week before the Breeders’ Cup, and on the day of their volunteer sessions, to be on their feet for a six hour period.

            Breeders’ Cup volunteers will have an opportunity to be involved with a world-class sports event that will be televised nationally on NBC Sports Group.  Those interested are encouraged to contact Sheila Solis at (626) 574-6663, or via email at sheila.solis@santaanita.com.
