Del Mar considering fall race dates? U.T. says so.
What's the scoop Mary?

If Betfair Hollywood Park closes, Del Mar racing could expand

DEL MAR — It’s been apparent for some time that horseracing’s days are numbered at Betfair Hollywood Park, but only recently have tracks in Southern California begun to address it, starting with Del Mar and Los Alamitos in Orange County.
Joe Harper, president and CEO of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, said Del Mar would like to host a short fall meeting so long as it included the Breeders’ Cup dates in late October or early November. Del Mar plans to expand and install a new turf course for the 2014 meeting and has designs on hosting the Breeders’ Cup Championships as early as November, 2015.
Considering all the ridicule Lester receives, it is remarkable how often he is proven correct.
Between horsemen races, mystery mutual vouchers, and Del Mar racing in the fall, it is time more people PAY ATTENTION.
Take my advise and do what you please
Del Mar will ONLY have a short fall meet IF they get the Breeders Cup...
This article really says nothing. They say they want dates "if" it coincides with the Breeders Cup, that to me is far different then saying they want to hold another meet year after year. I would actually interpret this article as meaning they do not want to run down here.
They want to with a passion in my opinion. Mary knows.
You should write headlines for Yahoo..or maybe the National Enquirer.
This would be like a 3 day meet..in order to draw the Breeders' Cup..
Even a 3 day meet in the fall at Del Mar would cause financial and housing problems for the many grooms, hotwalkers,
exercise riders, etc.
