Santa Anita to Maintain Four-Day Race Week | BloodHorse.com
Satisfied with its performance during the 2011-12 meet, Santa Anita Park announced Feb. 22 that it had received permission from the California Horse Racing Board to not add Wednesdays to its current live race schedule during March and April.
