Goodby, Santa Anita; Hello, Hollywood Park

Santa Anita, we'll miss you! With your grace, charm, beautiful flower arrangements, antique paintings and statuary, you make your patrons feel like guests. Your management exudes class. Your track is fine and fun.

Hello, Hollywood Park, where with strong binoculars you can see large Marje hugging her stars. She has turned her track into a jail, employees are treated like inmates, the place is as stark as a jail.

What are the directors and stockholders of Hollypark doing? Tell Marje she's sinking your barge and put her out to pasture.

I'm waiting for Del Mar!
