Beautiful scenic track - worth a visit even if not a racing fan. This beautiful track, opened in , is such a wonderful throwback to an earlier time.
It is worth a visit even if you aren't interested in racing just to see the architecture, decor, and the gorgeous view from the stands.
All employees encountered throughout the couple days spent here were incredible. I was actually there for a wedding.
I was a little dubious about a wedding at a horse track at first, but as soon as I was onsite I understood. We all had an excellent time and it really was a beautiful site for the event.
Date of experience: February Helpful Share. Hi there! We are glad to hear you had a great time at the wedding! Be sure to check out our website for all the fun events we have planned at The Great Race Place!
Kirby wrote a review Feb Not bad. Friendly staff. Scenic views. Good choices for seating and food and drinks. We'll mannered horse fans.
Good roast beef sandwiches. Of course the Breeder's Cup at Santa Anita was great. The carved roast beef, corned beef, and turkey sandwiches were tops.
We hope you'll join us again soon at The Great Race Place! Ayr, United Kingdom 33 contributions 3 helpful votes.
Scotland on tour. Spent two days at the beautiful Santa Anita racetrack. Both good days but the trackside marquee was my favourite. In February , after President Franklin D.
Roosevelt issued Executive Order , which authorized military commanders to exclude "any or all persons" from certain areas in the name of national defense, the Western Defense Command began ordering Japanese Americans living on the West Coast to present themselves for "evacuation" from the newly created military zones.
Seventeen temporary "assembly centers" were designated to house the evicted population until construction on the more permanent and isolated internment camps was finished.
Most, like the Santa Anita assembly center , were converted from former uses like racing tracks or fairgrounds.
Santa Anita was turned over to the Wartime Civilian Control Administration, the government body responsible for oversight of the temporary detention facilities, in March , and army engineers soon after built barracks on the parking lot and converted the horse stables and the area underneath the grandstand into residential "apartments".
Inmates began arriving in April, most coming from the surrounding Los Angeles County, and the center's population soon topped 18,, peaking at 18, by August of that year.
Six mess halls, each seating approximately at a time, fed some 3, people daily at a cost of 33 cents per inmate.
The sanitary facilities faced similar overcrowding, with a ratio of 30 inmates to each shower after the number of showers was increased from to in early July.
Consequently, inmates spent a significant portion of their time in Santa Anita waiting in line for meals or to use the sanitary facilities.
The Assembly Center remained open for seven months, and in the meantime, inmates took up jobs in camp at the camouflage net factory, the hospital or various administrative departments, and set up schools to ensure their children's education would not be interrupted.
Transfer to War Relocation Authority camps began on August 26, , when inmates left for Poston , Arizona, and over the next month the remaining Japanese Americans were sent to Poston and several other camps.
Santa Anita has a one-mile 1, m natural dirt main track which rings a turf course measuring 0. This type of track is one of the few of its kind in America.
In August , Santa Anita broke ground on a new backstretch turf chute. Santa Anita effectively ended downhill turf sprints following an incident in the San Simeon Stakes ; under their plans, the hillside turf course will continue to be used for distance races.
To comply with a State of California mandate, Santa Anita replaced its dirt racing surface with a new synthetic surface called Cushion Track , a mixture of silica sand, synthetic fibers, elastic fiber, granulated rubber and a wax coating.
The new Cushion Track opened for training on Sept 4, and hosted its first live race on Sept 26, The track lost 11 racing dates in due to a drainage problem with the new material, but intensive maintenance and the addition of a liquid binder greatly improved the artificial surface.
Santa Anita replaced the artificial surface with a return to an all natural dirt surface in December Santa Anita occupies acres 1.
The grandstand facade is rendered in an Art Deco style and is largely the original from the s. The Park also contains 61 barns, which house more than 2, horses, and an equine hospital.
The Santa Anita Racetrack was determined eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places in ,  but continued to be threatened by developer's plans.
A themed entertainment complex proposal was aborted, but there were new plans are in the works for the parking and support areas adjacent to the historic race track and grandstands.
The Arcadia City Council approved a plan In April to develop an , square foot commercial, retail, and office complex in the south parking area, where the barracks that housed interned Japanese Americans during World War II are located.
The proposal planned to tear down the South Ticket Gate and the Saddling Barn, and to install a simulcast facility in the center of the historic grandstand.
As of May [update] , the plans to build another mall next to Santa Anita Park were abandoned. Protests against the project by the Westfield group, owner of the adjacent Westfield Santa Anita Mall built in on the site of the old barns and training track , and the bankruptcy of Magna International , owner of Santa Anita Park, were a factor in the decision.
TVG , which acquired Horse Racing TV HRTV in , is a hour television based multimedia network dedicated to horse racing which features racing action from many of the sport's greatest racetracks around the world.
Santa Anita talent now host the simulcast feed. The following Graded events were held at Santa Anita Park in with inaugural runnings in parenthesis.
In , Santa Anita will host the Breeders' Cup for a record 10th time. Highlights of the previous events include: . Santa Anita Park is also an event venue, most notably for popular food festival Night Market.
