“All of us at Santa Anita and Golden Gate Fields are saddened by the passing of Chuck Winner. Through a trying time Chairman Winner guided California racing with a steady hand, forward thinking and calm deliberation. He was a passionate supporter of racing as an owner, a regulator and a fan. His leadership of the California Horse Racing Board and commitment to safety has left a lasting impact on horse racing in California and beyond.
Santa Anita Park, Golden Gate Fields, 1/ST RACING and all industry stakeholders in the state benefited from his guidance and thoughtful counsel. We will miss him. Our thoughts and condolences are with Annie and his family during this difficult time.”
