Santa Anita Tradition: Free Wall Calendars Available To Fans Opening Day

A “must-have” among racegoers for decades, Santa Anita’s traditional wall calendar will be available free to all fans with paid admission on opening day, Thursday, Dec. 26.  This year’s calendar will include racing highlights from the past 12 months and information about the California Retirement Management Account (CARMA), which is based at Santa Anita and assists retired racehorses in finding their next career and home.

CARMA, which operates largely on purse money which is designated by Thoroughbred owners, facilitates funding and networking for over 20 aftercare charities in addition to running a placement program that serves horses that have competed on California tracks.  Each month features a different function of CARMA, including the Thoroughbred Classic Horse Shows where retired racehorses can compete against each other in multiple disciplines, aftercare awareness events and placement success stories.

In addition to its traditional wall calendar, Santa Anita will provide fans with a full serving of world class racing on opening day, as the Grade I, $300,000 Runhappy Malibu and the Grade I, $300,000 La Brea Stakes will highlight a tremendous program that will also include the Grade II Mathis Brothers Mile and the Grade II San Antonio Stakes.

Special early first post time on opening day is at 11:30 a.m. and admission gates open at 9:30 a.m. For additional information, please visit santaanita.com or call (626) 574-RACE.
