This just in.....Magna and Santa Anita have scheduled a press conference for 5 AM tomorrow morning. The time was chosen to coincide with the east coast news cycle.
Pending news: Santa Anita to cancel rest of meet due to sustained drainage problems with track.
Quote from Ron Charles: "Uh, we are expecting lots of weather and stuff in the next few weeks. And at this point, we are just a bit sick and tired of wondering if the track will drain correctly. So let's just call the whole thing off."
Quote from Mike Willman: "While we are very disappointed in having to cancel the meet, I wanted to take this opportunity to let everyone know that McCanns Mojave will be standing stud in 2010. He won stakes races at 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 years old. He ran short, long, on wet tracks, on beds of nails, and he will surely pass these fine qualities to his offspring. Fee is negotiable."
Quote from Mary S., Del Mar Fan Forum administrator: "No more shouting in your posts, please."
This was a joke, only a joke. Santa Anita's meet will proceed as scheduled.
