    The track has layer after layer of foundation. I ridden on this track. This has been a really wet year already for California.

    Awesome, here comes the media to save the day. Death and destruction, YAY, the only thing the media cares about.

    I have to rethink my attitude toward horse racing. Where are the state gambling regulators? How can the country get so upset over dog fighting but horses stumbling to their death not a problem. Sounds like hypocrisy.

    These are colts running in the Malibu, not fillies. How hard to do some research before reporting. On the other side, this is so sad. 19 horses! We love this sport and we want to see these horses run under the safest circumstances. I hope they solve this issue soon.

    Close the track after heavy rainfall and do not allow racing after a certain amount of rainfall during a certain amount of time.

    This is so sad ,I used to be a fan of this sport, but once I saw a video of how horses are treated and discarded like trash, I never have supported horse racing again, poor horses they do everything there asked to do, and just because they can't run as fast as another horse they end up in a slaughter house, heartless people owners, and then the trainer's making a living on a sport as cruel as horse racing, meany of you good people if you only knew ,you would not support this sport, this is my opinion.

    The stonarch group changed the track manager to save money- california horse racing board has no concearn for horse or rider only wagering. The track stewards cover up accidents during training and retaliate against any riders who complain

    Eliminate the use of bute and lasix and ALL other drugs that cover up wear and tear seen with aging. Don't allow horses to race beyond 4. Best idea yet…STOP BETTING AND THIS "SPORT" GOES AWAY IN A WEEK!!!!

    horses are not bred with the durability as horses in the past. now the story is no lasix usaged nor whipping during morning workouts. there are no problems at racetracks in the country and in the world. yes its something under the dirt causing missteps. on the real tip, exercise riders who are undocumented immigrants are content to just ride a horse combined with trainers looking to get quick cash to bring a baby from the farm to fill in that spot though it will not be ready to race for 4 months at the earliest. but there will be racing in 2 weeks. problem is trainers are skeptical bringing their colts to Santa Anita racetrack for the breeders cup to jeopardize their breeding career, which is millions of dollars.

    they ought to bull doze it like Hollywood Park , racing has seen it's day in California , sealing the track is a big mistake , they don't do that as much at Belmont Park and there are a lot less break downs there

    That is why the Almighty Creator does not want us to get involve with gambling, game of chance, lottery, dividing meat by lottery and so on. Although He has given us many years of respite.
