CHRB Asks Santa Anita to Suspend Racing; Breeders’ Cup in Question

June 10, 2019

The CHRB requested Santa Anita suspend racing through the conclusion of the ongoing meet. The Breeders’ Cup is as of now scheduled to be run at Santa Anita in November. The Breeders’ Cup board is meeting June 27th and it is a board decision whether or not to move the event. Churchill Downs has been mentioned but Del Mar may be a better choice logistically. Flights that have been purchased could still be honored if they move the Breeders’ Cup to Del Mar and California would still benefit from the tourism aspect. You have to think this will be a major topic at the upcoming board meeting.

Reports confirmed a 29th equine fatality June 9 after the racetrack made the decision not to honor the CHRB request to suspend racing for the remainder of the meet.

“It is our understanding that Santa Anita management, after consultation with certain other industry stakeholders, believes that for a variety of reasons, the future of California racing is best served by continuing to race,” the CHRB said in a statement issued in response to questions from the Los Angeles Times.

The request came from CHRB chairman Chuck Winner, vice chair Madeline Auerbach, and executive director Rick Baedeker, according to the report.
