Del Mar might be a viable alternative remember not everyone dislikes polytrack.

The real issue is Stronach who interests are not aligned with the preservation of horse racing and who's decision making is counter intuitive.
More trainers dislike this stuff than you think. These vocal ones who come out publicly and say, "everything is great" stick in your head so it makes you think some like it some don't. Other than Baffert, Shirreffs and Headley, i dont know that too many have come out publicly against plastic, but if you ask them behind the scenes, they hate it.

I've asked a few trainers, owners and other people inside racing what they think of this stuff and they all say its garbage. I ask them "what do you hear on the backstretch" and they all say "everyone hates it"

I would suggest to anyone who has access to 'inside' people in the So Cal game to ask around and see what type of responses you get. Ask some owners and trainers and other insiders what they think and you all can judge for yourself. I haven't heard too many positive things, if any.
