P6 paid $466,000 to one lucky ticket holder today.

Its possible that they could be paid in cash, 100%, and on the honor system to declare the income for tax purposes!
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

NEW ‘SUNDAY BRUNCH’ FIRST POST TIME OF 11:30 A.M. STARTS MARCH 11

Santa Anita Park has announced that it will adopt a new “Sunday Brunch” first post time of 11:30 a.m. on all Sundays, beginning with the onset of Daylight Savings Time on March 11, through closing day of its current Winter/Spring Meet on June 24.

Good idea?
Probably yes if you're in the eastern time zone, but in Arcadia it means having to leave church a little early, hmmmm!

Worrisome...

Santa Anita: Track cancels Tiznow Stakes
The $100,000 Tiznow Stakes for California-bred milers scheduled for Sunday will not be run. The race drew only four entrants on Thursday, leading to the cancellation. Sunday's program will not have a stakes.

Image of Joplin, Smokey Image, Solid Wager and Summersimage were entered from a list of 10 nominations. Track vice-president and racing secretary Rick Hammerle said the Tiznow Stakes will not be rescheduled.

Storm alert, we might get an inch of rain!

On the coast, Santa Barbara is undergoing mandatory evacuations from the fire areas.

At Santa Anita, the track is being sealed immediately after the Thursday races.

There will be no turf racing Fri/Sat.

With the anticipated off tracks upcoming, no less than 287 horses worked out Thursday morning.

Take cover!

I suspect that the next couple of racing days at Santa Anita may not have full fields, either. The heavy rain that we're supposed to get starting tonight may lead to the grass races being moved to a muddy/sealed main, which will likely lead to some scratches.
ETA: You beat me to it, Stark. I'm a sloow typist. :P ;)

J Petrman‏ @meadowacolyte
Replying to @BH_JBalan
I notice they have maiden races for horses sold at auction for less than 100k. Not surprised they ditched the small trainer part, but also tossed homebreds?

It appears that way. The condition for Sunday's race says "restricted to horses sold at public auction for $100,000 or less." The anti-Baffert condition.

We'll see how well that works; IIRC, the last time they ran a race like this (which had the additional homebred condition), a Baffert won it. :lol:

Baffert won two (I think out of three) of them, but both were homebreds.
