Santa Anita Moving Friday’s Program To Monday, March 7, Over Likelihood Of Rain – Horse Racing News

Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif.

With Friday’s weather forecast calling for a 90 percent chance of rain in Arcadia, Calif., Santa Anita Park, in consultation with the Thoroughbred Owners of California and the California Horse Racing Board, has announced it will shift Friday’s eight-race program to Monday, March 7, with first post time at 12:30 p.m. PT.

Accordingly, there will be no re-draw, with Monday’s program now scheduled as an exact replica of what had been planned for Friday.

Although rain is predicted throughout the afternoon on Friday, Monday’s Arcadia forecast is for sunny skies with a high temperature of 68 degrees.

With a mandatory payout in Golden Gate Fields’ 20 cent Single Ticket Rainbow Pick 6 Jackpot on tap Monday, first post time at the Northern California track is scheduled for 12:15 p.m and will thus run concurrently with Santa Anita.

This Saturday, March 5, is the inaugural 1/ST Saturday, featuring an unrivaled day of racing pairing Santa Anita with Gulfstream Park.  With 15 stakes scheduled between both tracks, including three Grade 1 events at Santa Anita, Saturday is poised to be one of the biggest days of the year.
