Santa Anita Race Track will be hosting the Breeders' Cup this weekend. Breeder’s Cup races will be run on both Friday and Saturday, October 24th and 25th. Refer the Santa Anita website for post hours and general information. Traffic flow in the area will be heavier than normal due to the crowds. Please allow yourself extra time if travelling in the City this weekend. Overflow parking for the event will be directed to the LA Co. Park if needed. The only planned road closure will be Colorado Place between Colorado Boulevard and Huntington Drive, each day from about 3:30 PM till 6:30 PM. Gates to the parking lots may be intermittently closed due to traffic flow, but Officers will be on hand to direct traffic as efficiently as possible.
Closing day for the Oak Tree Meet is Sunday, October 26th, and may also draw heavier crowds and traffic to the area. Please be patient with traffic and help the City welcome the 2008 Breeders' Cup to Santa Anita Race Track.
