Hollywood Park closes for good

Associated Press | December 22, 2013
INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- Fans crowded into Betfair Hollywood Park for the last time Sunday.

The track closed for good after the day's 11 races, ending 75 years of racing that featured such thoroughbred stars as Seabiscuit, Triple Crown winners Citation, Seattle Slew and Affirmed, and Zenyatta. The first Breeders' Cup in 1984 was run here. The track will be turned into a residential and retail development starting next year.

People wait in line to enter Hollywood Park in Inglewood, Calif., on Sunday, the final day of horse racing at the track. After 75 years of thoroughbred racing, the 260-acre track is closing for good.
For its last day, though, the track came alive again, with jammed parking lots, lines at the betting windows, and fans and employees swapping stories about the Track of the Lakes and Flowers. Paid attendance exceeded 13,000 -- more than double that of a typical weekend -- and after 2 p.m. the gates were opened to everyone to alleviate congestion, a track spokesman said.

It was the largest crowd since 25,837 attended Zenyatta's last race in California on Oct. 2, 2010.

California Chrome, the 2-1 favorite ridden by Victor Espinoza and trained by Art Sherman, won the final stakes race, the $200,000 King Glorious for 2-year-olds by 6 1/4 lengths.

Bugler Jay Cohen announced the final post parade of horses with a medley of "Auld Lang Syne" and "Hooray for Hollywood" before they walked onto the track to the Etta James classic "At Last."

A huge cheer went up as announcer Vic Stauffer told the crowd, "It's post time!" Fans kept up the cheers as the horses ran through the stretch to the finish line. Fittingly, it was a photo finish.

Woodmans Luck, ridden by Corey Nakatani and trained by Vladimir Cerin, was declared the winner of the turf race worth $50,000.

Rafael Bejarano rode four winners on the card to wrap up the jockeys' title with 37 winners, while Hall of Famer Bob Baffert was shut out on the final day, but won the training title with 16 winners to John Sadler's 15.

Dick Van Patten, the 85-year-old actor who starred in TV's "Eight is Enough," was a longtime regular. He walked away a winner, when his horse Tanquerray won the $50,000 third race.

Amid the sadness was some bitterness as well.

Jack Van Berg, the 77-year-old Hall of Fame trainer, blamed the cities of Inglewood and Los Angeles and the state of California for the track's closure.

"I just think it's a pathetic thing," he said near the paddock. "It's ridiculous to let something like this that so many people love and thrive on close. They did everything they could to kill racing."

Betfair Hollywood Park is the second major California racetrack to close since 2008, when Bay Meadows near San Francisco was shuttered after 74 years to make way for a similar development.

Van Berg, who has raced in California for 41 years, said he's moving his operations to Oaklawn Park in Arkansas.

Betfair Hollywood Park

Hollywood Park hosted the first Breeders' Cup in 1984. The track featured such thoroughbred stars as Seabiscuit, Triple Crown winners Citation, Seattle Slew and Affirmed and Zenyatta.
"I've had enough," he said. "I don't like California racing anymore. I don't like the way they run it and what they do."

Betfair Hollywood Park is the second major California racetrack to close since 2008, when Bay Meadows near San Francisco was shuttered after 74 years to make way for a similar development.

Santa Anita, located in Arcadia, will open its winter meet Thursday. Los Alamitos in Orange County will pick up some of Hollywood Park's racing dates, too.

The track's future had been in question since Churchill Downs sold it to Hollywood Park Land Co. in 2005.

At the time, the new owner said racing would continue for a minimum of three years while an effort was made to revitalize the sport's business model. But the track had little luck in stemming declines in wagering and attendance, problems that plague the racing industry nationwide. Statewide initiatives to install slot machines at the track also failed.

Plans call for the track's 260-acre footprint to be turned into 3,000 housing units, including single-family townhomes and condos; 25 acres of parkland, including a 10-acre central park; and a retail and entertainment district, anchored by a movie theatre, office space and a 300-room hotel.

Hollywood Park opened in 1938 under the direction of movie moguls Jack and Harry Warner. Among the celebrity regulars years ago were Elizabeth Taylor, Jimmy Stewart and Bing Crosby.

Baffert made his first visit from Arizona in the early 1970s.

"The thing I remember most was getting up close to the winner's circle and seeing Cary Grant," he said. "That was a thrill."

The track had been preparing to close for weeks. The gift shop was cleaned out of souvenirs before closing day. Some photos of jockeys on the wall in the betting areas had already disappeared.

Much of the track's items, including artwork and memorabilia, tractors and restaurant equipment, will be auctioned on Jan. 24-25.

Two errant flamingoes that escaped capture a few weeks ago sunned themselves on the edge of one of the infield lakes. They will soon be rounded up and taken to a Northern California zoo, where the track's other flamingoes were relocated.

About 50 cats living in the stable area are in search of new homes before the barn area closes at the end of January. The sprawling grandstand will be torn down and simulcasting will be moved to the adjacent casino.

The graves of three horses buried in the infield will be relocated. Native Diver, who won the Hollywood Gold Cup from 1965-67, will be moved to Del Mar racetrack near San Diego. Landaluce, the 2-year-old champion filly of 1982, will go to Spendthrift Farm in Kentucky, where she was bred. Great Communicator, the 1988 Breeders' Cup Turf winner, also will be moved.

“Betfair Hollywood Park”

Hollywood Turf Club, as it was called back then, opened in June 10, 1938. The racetrack was designed by architect Arthur Froehlich and it’s Board of Directors included Harry and Jack Warner of Warner Brothers, Al Jolson, Bing Crosby, Ralph Bellamy with Mervyn LeRoy as the general manager from 1941 until his death in 1987.

Hollywood Turf Club was an immediate success with a little help from the legendary Seabiscuit, who won the inaugural (1938) running of the Hollywood Gold Cup, the track’s signature race. All told the Hollywood Gold Cup would be won by 11horses that went on to win Horse Racing’s highest honor, Horse of the Year. (1938, Seabiscuit; 1940, Challedon; 1951, Citation; 1956, Swaps; 1957, Round Table; 1971, Ack Ack; 1979, Affirmed; 1987, Ferdinand; 1990, Criminal Type; 1995, Cigar; 1998, Skip Away).

In 1951, the great Citation, who won the 1948 Triple Crown, became Horse Racing’s first millionaire when he won the Hollywood Gold Cup.

A triple dead heat for win at HollywoodPark occurred on July 3, 1957, when $5,000 claimers Joe’s Pleasure (George Taniguchi), Challenger Tom (Bill Shoemaker) and Leaful (William Harmatz) could not be separated.

In 1958, the great Swaps set four world records and tied another at the track with three of those efforts toting 130 pounds.

In 1965, Hollywood’s average attendance was ranked #1 in the country with an eye popping 34,000 people showing up on a daily basis. (Just as an FYI, nowadays, HollywoodPark averages about 6,000-8,000 people daily).

Also in the mid-1960’s California-bred, fan favorite and speed demon Native Diver, who never seemed to tire, dazzled crowds with a then-unprecedented three straight Gold Cup wins.

In 1971, Hollwood introduced the now enormously popular Exacta bet, one yours truly uses quite frequently….without much success might I add. That same year, the track was the first to break the $4 million daily handle barrier and later the amount became the average handle as well.

In 1974, a monumental east vs. west match race between that years two top fillies took place at HollywoodPark. Eastern star and Filly Triple Crown winner Chris Evert, ridden by Jorge Velasquez, took on western standout Miss Musket, with Laffit Pincay Jr.

Each owner put up $100,000 and track added $150,000 for total (record purse) of $350,000. Chris Evert, the second choice, embarrassed Miss Musket while winning by (no exaggeration) 50 lengths while getting 1 1/4 miles distance in 2:02.

Perhaps the biggest upset in the history of HollywoodPark occurred on On July 3, 1977 when unbeaten Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew finished fourth in the Swaps Stakes to J.O. Tobin in a race Slew never should have run in.

In 1979, Affirmed, who won the 1978 Triple Crown after fierce battles with the ill fated [b]Alydar[/b], became racing’s first horse to amass $2-million in purses when he won the 1979 Hollywood Gold Cup under jockey Laffit Pincay Jr.

In 1980, Hollywood Park set a then record of 80,348 with a tote bag giveaway.

Also in 1980 (June 7), Hollywood introduces the Pick Six (pick the winners of 6 consecutive races for a monster payoff), yet another colossally popular bet that racetrack across the country still use all the time. This helped HollywoodPark move from $4 million a day handle to $5 million.

Perhaps the fastest filly I’ve ever seen run live, Landaluce make a mockery of her peers in a pair of races at Hollywood Park in 1982…she won her racing debut there by 7 ½ lengths and then absolutely pulverized the field in her next race there (The Hollywood Lassie Stakes) when she won by an astounding 21 lengths while getting six furlongs in 1:08.1.

In 1983, seven-time Eclipse Award winner John Henry became the first horse to surpass $4 million in career earnings with a win in the 1983 Hollywood Turf Cup under jockey Chris McCarron.

Also in 1983, HollywoodPark ran the first $1 million race for two year olds in the history of the sport. The 1983 Hollywood Futurity, which actually carried a purse of $1,049,725 by post-time, was won by Fali Time.

Things really began to heat up for HollywoodPark when they were elected to host the inaugural (1984) Breeders Cup series. In fact, on November 4, 1984 Hollywood had to make some radical changes including incorporating a 1,321-foot home stretch with extended chute to permit one-mile races around one turn so all the BC races would be able to be run.

Before a crowd of 64,625 and an estimated 50 million viewers, Hollywood Park was host the first of three Breeders’ Cup days on Nov. 7, 1984, handling a then-record $11,466,941.

Just three years later, HollywoodPark became the first track to host a second Breeders’ Cup, setting a handle record of $14,352,515 on Nov. 21, 1987.

Tejano won the 1987 Hollywood Futurity to become racing’s first juvenile millionaire.

In February of 1991, R.D. Hubbard gained control of HollywoodPark, made a few adjustments and attendance increased 11.3% and handle rose 7.3%.

The $1 Superfecta, (picking the first four finishers in order) another bet yours truly frequents, once again without much success, was introduced before the 1993 Spring/Summer Meet.

The $20-million Hollywood Park-Casino was opened on Friday, July 1, 1994.The state-of-the-art card club/casino features several games and [CENSORED] . It became an inter-track hit with simulcasts from within the State, throughout the U.S., and from as far away as Hong Kong.

Yet another milestone was achieved when the public bet $377,880 to win and $524,348 across the board on Cigar in the 1995 Hollywood Gold Cup. The two-time Horse of the Year did not disappoint and won the race by 3 1/2 lengths to return $3.80.

Laffit Pincay Jr. reached racing’s summit at Hollywood Park on Dec. 10, 1999, riding Irish Nip to victory in the sixth race. It was career win No. 8,834, one more than Bill Shoemaker, who retired with 8,883 wins in 1990.

Churchill Downs Incorporated closed a $140-million deal to acquire HollywoodPark on Sept. 10, 1999. The deal included the Hollywood Park-Casino, which was leased back to Hollywood Park Inc. I believe this transaction was the beginning of the end for the iconic track.

Churchill Downs Inc. then spun around and sold the track to Bay Meadows Land Company on July 6, 2005 for $257.5 million and in the process, turning a $117.5 million profit in less than six years.

After the deal was closed and announced we all knew the end was coming. Personally I didn’t want to believe it, but deep down, I knew it was coming. I mean Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles saw it coming with Bay Meadows Land Company being a “land development company”.

Cushion (synthetic) Track was installed following the 2006 Spring/Summer Meet, and opened for training on Sept. 13, 2006 at a cost of more than $8 million.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the great Zenyatta in this article either. She was the queen of Hollywood for three straight years and called it home as well.


Zenyatta won the Vanity for an unprecedented third time and was voted Horse of the Meet for a third consecutive year in 2010. The Vanity victory over a courageous St. Trinians, in probably one of the top five races I’ve ever witnessed, was the 17th in a row for the brilliant mare, who was ultimately honored as Horse of the Year. To this day, I’m not sure how the mighty “Z” won. She was a beaten horse with less than 100 yards to go.

By 2012, average attendance had plummeted from 35,000 in the mid-60s to an average of 4,755 for the spring/summer meet and to a mere 3,189 in the autumn even with the announcement of a merger (sort of speak) between Hollywood Park and Betfair US, the Los Angeles based subsidiary of Betfair Group that also owns Television Games Network.

The historic agreement, made official on March 13, 2012, was intended to transform the customer experience for fans at the venue as well as online and on television. Under terms of the five year deal, HollywoodPark was renamed “Betfair Hollywood Park”

To their credit, Hollywood’s various management teams (Marje Everett in the ’80s, R.D. Hubbard in the ’90s, Churchill Downs Inc., and then Bay Meadows Land Co. in the new millennium) tried just about everything to stave off the inevitable. They innovated, renovated, added, and subtracted racing days, instituted night racing, introduced ever-more exotic wagering forms, expanded the track, then synthesized it, built a casino, gave away things, held concerts, and threw parties but fewer fans showed up with each passing year.

Finally, on May 9, 2012, Hollywood Park President Jack Liebau, threw in the proverbial towel and said: “From an economic point of view, the land now simply has a higher and better use, so, unfortunately, racing will not continue here once the autumn meet is completed.”

The California Horse Racing Board was notified by the track’s owners that it will not seek racing dates in 2014 and will close the stable area at the end of this year.

“Ownership has been upfront from the beginning that the property would eventually be developed unless there were significant changes in the horse racing business,’’ said Jack Liebau. “Despite the Hollywood Park Land Company financially supporting two statewide initiatives with varying degrees of support from other segments of the racing industry, the attempts to upgrade the business model were not successful”.

So exactly what is a “higher and better use” you may ask? (Well, I did at least). The answer is on the 238 acre plot there will be the following: The Hollywood Park Casino, an enormous shopping center, a 300-room hotel, office space, parks, 2,995 residences (mostly single-family houses and townhouses), two lakes and several new streets.

Liebau said the stable area will closed by the end of this year and that all of the some 1,200 horses will be off the grounds by then so “construction can start almost immediately after the first of the year.”….Thanks Mr. Liebau but…please…don’t rub it in and thanks to you Hollywood Park for 75 years of some of the best racing in the history of mankind….you will be sorely missed.
