This much is certain: There will be an autumn meeting at Betfair Hollywood Park for six weeks beginning Thursday and a spring-summer meeting starting in late April.
After that, the future of the historic racetrack is uncertain. There is a chance the property could be sold to real estate developers next year, which would lead to the cessation of racing. Then again, the track could still be running at this time next year.
The immediate future of the track will be better known in January, when Hollywood Park officials are expected to announce to the California Horse Racing Board whether it will conduct an autumn meeting in 2013. If not, the Southern California Thoroughbred racing calendar is expected to undergo massive changes, with Santa Anita taking a larger role and additional racing taking place at Los Alamitos or Fairplex Park.
