SANTA ANITA’S COMBINED WINTER & SPRING MEETINGS GENERATE OVER $1 BILLION IN PARI-MUTUEL HANDLE AS TRACK CONTINUES TO LEAD WAY WITH LARGEST GUARANTEED POOLS WHICH PROVIDE PLAYERS WITH CONSISTENT LIQUIDITY

 

ARCADIA, Calif. (June 20, 2015)–From the commencement of its Winter Meet on Dec. 26 through today, Santa Anita Park has now eclipsed the $1 billion mark in pari-mutuel handle, as the track continues to provide players across the country with large guaranteed pools and dependable levels of liquidity–making Santa Anita a consistent “best bet” with horseplayers nationwide.

“Everyone knows what you get when you spend a day at Santa Anita,” said veteran horseplayer and longtime editor/publisher of The Horseplayer Magazine, Tom Quigley. “It’s the most beautiful track in the world, with the mountains, architecture and multimillion dollar improvements, which all serve to enhance what serious horseplayers have come to know, especially in recent years, and that is that Santa Anita consistently offers players the biggest and best wagering pools in the country.”

With the nation’s highest rated jockey colony and many of America’s top trainers represented on a daily basis, Santa Anita racing consistently provides players with the highest average pari-mutuel handle per horse in the country.

Santa Anita currently leads the nation with a $500,000 guaranteed Late Pick Four pool and a $150,000 guaranteed Pick Six pool each weekend.

First post time at Santa Anita over closing weekend, June 27 & 28, will be at 1 p.m. For tickets, reservations or more information, fans are encouraged to visit santaanita.com.
