__ALL NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART SANTA ANITA PADDOCK VIDEO BOARDS TO GREET FANS BEGINNING WITH AUTUMN MEET OPENER ON FRIDAY, SEPT. 29 __
ARCADIA, CA (Sept. 28, 2023)—Fans will be greeted by a pair of all-new state-of-the-art paddock video boards beginning on opening day of Santa Anita’s 19-day Autumn Meet, Friday, Sept. 29. The meet will be highlighted by the 40th annual two-day Breeders’ Cup World Championships, which Santa Anita will be hosting for a record 11th time on Nov. 3 & 4.
Manufactured by US-based Daktronics, a worldwide leader in LED displays, the video boards each measure nine feet tall by 16 feet wide and will significantly enhance the on-track experience for both fans and horsemen.
While the previous paddock video boards had a pixel pitch of 15mm, the new boards provide much higher quality viewing, with a finer 6mm pixel pitch.
First installed and operational in 2012, the paddock video boards have become a popular component of Santa Anita’s overall audio/video presentation, enabling fans to watch races live while enjoying the track’s picturesque Paddock Gardens area.
