STATEMENT FROM THE STRONACH GROUP ON DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S REPORT FINDING NO EVIDENCE OF MISCONDUCT AT SANTA ANITA PARK
We thank District Attorney Lacey’s Office for their diligent work in this robust investigation into whether any conduct or conditions at Santa Anita Park affected the welfare of safety and horses. We are all committed to the same thing–the highest level of equine safety and welfare–and we will continue to do everything possible to promote equine and rider health and safety. And we are gratified that the District Attorney’s report into the conduct and conditions at Santa Anita Park found no evidence of misconduct.
The Stronach Group looks forward to working further with the California Horse Racing Board, industry partners, and other stakeholders to implement recommendations from the taskforce’s report, many of which Santa Anita Park has already started implementing.
