UPDATE – APRIL 23
Santa Anita is continuing discussions with the LA County Health Department and LA County Supervisor Kathryn Barger’s office as they undertake a thorough and thoughtful review of the proposal submitted to resume live racing as soon as possible at Santa Anita. The comprehensive written proposal was submitted last Thursday (April 16), following a meeting with Supervisor Barger earlier that day.
While Santa Anita is first and foremost in our minds, we are one of literally hundreds of businesses asking for attention during this Pandemic. The process, as thorough as it is, is time-consuming. However, we anticipate receiving an answer shortly.
To manage expectations, should we be able to resume live racing under the new protocols submitted, we anticipate there will be a delay of 7-10 days between acceptance of the plan and implementation of the protocols to return to live racing.
