Del Mar had it's current turf course grown elsewhere for two years before they installed it and still, that first meet they had problems. Then the next meet it was fine. Takes a long time to grow in right

Did they race on it the first year it was installed at the track?

They put it in at the track after it had grown two years elsewhere. I forgot how long it was on the surface before they ran.

That's what happens when you have the best circuit.

Didn't they run the BC on it that first year?

But a CD, that patch between the main course and the turf course looks lush. They might be able to run match races over it.
