Citing a lack of entries, Hollywood Park has cancelled live racing for Thursday, June 17, the second time during the current meet that racing was called off because of a lack of horses.
The California track is going ahead with live racing on Wednesday, June 16, for which drew 52 horses, or an average 6.5 per race, for the eight-race card.
Hollywood Park also cancelled live racing May 26 because of insufficient entries. The current meet ends July 18.
Last year, Hollywood Park cancelled the last nine Wednesday programs of the meet and cancelled one Thursday card early in the meet, all due to the shortage of horses.
Perhaps it’s time for Hollywood to take a good look at Monmouth’s experiment!
