But if you move it to December-- guess what, Southern California, like everywhere else, is COLDER in December. Which would defeat the purpose of going somewhere warm.

My guess is that there are some horsemen who grumble about having to run their 3 year olds against older horses, and they are trying to respond to that. At any rate, the idea is nuts.
I'd bet my life savings that this hasn't happened. Trainers all know that 3yos run against older horses at that time of year. Always have and always shall be. Besides, they gave the reason. "Derby envy."
