Expanded Roles Seen for Santa Anita, Del Mar

With Fairplex Park announcing it is pulling out of expanding its racetrack, Santa Anita Park and Del Mar are likely to host the 2014 Southern California racing circuit should Hollywood Park shut down.

Santa Anita's major meet, which begins Dec. 26 and ordinarily runs to late April, would be extended through July 4. The calendar could then go dark for a period of 10 to 15 days before the annual Del Mar summer stand commences.

The northern San Diego County track would likely extend its meet an extra week during the summer. Fairplex would then hold its annual three-week meet in conjunction with the Los Angles County Fair.

More changes would be coming in the fall, when Hollywood Park usually hosts its autumn meet. As it has in recent years, Santa Anita would run from late September or early October through the first week in November. Del Mar would then add a fall meet for the balance of November.
