Golden Gate Drops Three Live Race Cards

Move coincides with changes in Southern California racing schedule.

(Edited press release)

Citing the decision by Hollywood Park to  adopt a four-day racing week that eliminated Wednesday racing programs as well as the card scheduled for Thursday, May 28, Golden Gate Fields announced May 22 that it is dropping the racing programs scheduled for Thursday, May 28; Wednesday, June 3; and Wednesday, June 10. 

In a release, Golden Gate Fields said dropping the race programs will enable the Northern California racing schedule to coincide with the racing schedule in Southern California.

Hollywood Park, citing a lack of horses, received permission from the California Horse Racing Board on May 15 to adopt a four-day racing week.
