Santa Anita Shifts Big 'Cap Saturday Card to Sunday

Santa Anita | Benoit

With a forecast of heavy rains, Santa Anita has shifted its Saturday racing card–which was to feature the GI Santa Anita H.–to Sunday. Heavy rain is expected in the Arcadia area into Saturday afternoon, but Sunday's forecast calls for sunny skies and a high temperature of 62 degrees. The decision to move Saturday's card was done in consultation with Dennis and Robert Moore, who oversee Santa Anita track maintenance, as well as with officials from the CHRB, TOC, CTT and Jockeys' Guild.

The Santa Anita H., GI Kilroe Mile, GII DK Horse San Felipe S. and the GII Buena Vista S. will now all be run Sunday with a first post time of 12:30 p.m. Entries for the 10-race card will be available Thursday afternoon.

Races originally scheduled for Sunday will be drawn Thursday and carded on Monday, with regular first post time at 12:30 p.m.
