Track History and Facts:
Santa Anita Racetrack opened to the public Christmas Day, 1934. The building of one of the most impressive race tracks started construction in 1933 with Lucky Baldwin’s daughter, Hollywood tycoons and sports figures helped create the Los Angeles Turf Club, which developed Santa Anita Racetrack in Arcadia in 1933 to 1934. On February 4, 1938, a $2,000 claimer named Playmay won the first race on the card and returned $673.40 for a two-dollar win. The turf course was built in 1953, has a hillside leg that crosses the main track to connect with the infield oval.  During World War II, it served as an assembly center for Japanese Americans being relocated to internment camps. In 1978 Affirmed won the Triple Crown with three consecutive Santa Anita victories, including an eight-length score in the Santa Anita Derby. In 1984, it served as the site of the Olympics equestrian competitions. The racetrack property covers 320 acres, including stable accommodations for 1,800 thoroughbreds, and features a one-mile main track, a seven-furlong turf course and a six-furlong training track. Santa Anita Park is located at 285 W. Huntington Drive in Arcadia, fourteen miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles, is one of the West Coast's top horse racing attractions. Santa Anita Park sits at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains. San Gabriel Mountains provide a stunning backdrop for Santa Anita's races.

HORSE RACING GAMBLING TIPS

  • Bet only on horses you feel have a good chance of winning.

  • If you don't like a horse, don't bet on it.

  • Give preference to winners. Choose a horse that has won before.

  • Avoid betting on a horse that has just moved up in class.

  • Look for value odds as much as likely winners. If you keep looking for them, you will learn to spot them fairly quickly.

  • Look for a horse that has a fair chance of winning and is not overly backed. This is usually a good value bet in the long run. On odds of say, 10:1, you need to win once in ten attempts to break even. Anything more is net profit. Horses backed heavily by touting services and computer handicappers may win more often, but are usually poor value bets.

  • When the track is slow or heavy, give preference to fast starters. Slow, muddy and heavy track conditions usually favor the horse that takes an early lead.

  • A straight bet is simple, manageable and not too difficult to win. Play it but always weigh up the odds. Avoid favorites and long shots (outsiders) too. Be selective - don't bet on anything or everything.

  • When betting straight, consider betting to win and show, or each-way, if the odds are relatively high.
