9 March 2019, Santa Anita, California, USA ~ As a thorough evaluation of Santa Anita’s main track continues, The Stronach Group has announced several new safety and welfare measures which will be put in place when racing resumes at Santa Anita Park in the coming weeks.
“We’re looking forward to returning to normal, but it will be a new normal,” said Tim Ritvo, Chief Operating Officer, TSG. “The safety of our equine and human athletes remains our highest priority. We need to work together and continue to create not only our own internal audits, but an open and honest dialogue with all of the stakeholders and evaluate best practices at other racetracks around the world.”
