The property next to Santa Anita , "Westfield Mall" is up for sale. The future doesn't look like Santa Anita will be racing.

Not sure that means much. I believe all the Westfield Malls are up for sale. The pandemic accelerated trends towards online shopping

The crusade against Lasix in stakes races can't possibly be helping.

But banning Lasix in stakes races just to please a bunch of woke crusaders is why there aren't even 6 horses in so many stakes races - let alone 16.

Six races with 6 horses, 3 races with 5 horses. One race with 8 horses. With rare exception, I stay away from races with 6 or fewer horses. It's getting hard for me to find playable cards.

Too many races. Need two days per week, one card with 6 and one card with 5 races.

The small fields just grind the minnows into the dust.
