Santa Anita Park has announced that trackman Dennis Moore will take over duties as track superintendent effective immediately. Moore has built and maintained track surfaces across the globe for the past 40 years and is currently in charge of main tracks at both Betfair Hollywood Park and at Los Alamitos Racecourse.
"We have so many variables to contend with here, from hot and dry conditions to large amounts of rain and limited sunshine in the winter months," said Tom Ludt, senior vice president of racing and gaming for Santa Anita, in a release. "It is imperative that our racing surfaces are maintained in world-class fashion and Dennis provides us with the level of expertise and understanding that is required. This is great news for Santa Anita."
A Southern California native, Moore, 63, has maintained surfaces at racetracks and training centers throughout North America, Canada, Dubai, England, and Germany.
