Santa Anita Park is an amazing visual experience, from the morning work-out to the architectural delights.
Opening Day was on Christmas in 1934. The original land sits on what was part of Rancho Santa Anita owned by Claudio Lopez. Santa Anita was the first to use starting gates and the photo finish. In 1940 Seabiscut won the Santa Anita Handicap. Showcased in many film and televisions shows, Santa Anita was also used as an internment camp during World War II. Home to the Oak Tree Association many key races are held here.
