Los Alamitos Cancels Friday Card Ahead Of Anticipated Rainstorm

Los Alamitos Racetrack in Cypress, Calif. has cancelled Friday’s races in anticipation of heavy rains, reports the Daily Racing Form. The National Weather Service is predicting at least one inch of rain in the area, beginning Thursday evening.

Also cancelling Friday racing was Santa Anita Park in Arcadia.

Last weekend, Los Alamitos opted to go ahead with Saturday night racing despite a rainstorm, drawing criticism from the Los Angeles Times’ John Cherwa.

The track has been under increased scrutiny from the California Horse Racing Board after a rash of equine fatalities in 2020, which led to the board initially granting Los Al only a six-month license for 2021. The track’s full-year license has since been reinstated.
