Chat about horses, racing, and the industry.
so what happens to this race? Does it just stop? Does SA take it over? Does it get a new name?
Not trying to raise hackles, just wondering, it is my favorite summer race.
"The bill approved in Congress to avert the so-called fiscal cliff would bring the first major tax increase on high earners in 20 years."

If it were up to me, I'd move the race to Santa Anita and rename it the Seabiscuit Gold Cup, thus honoring the horse that won the first running of the event and put the race's new host track on the map all at once. It is hard to believe there is no so. CA stakes race honoring Seabiscuit. Knowing Team though, it will probably be renamed the Milwaukee Brew Refillable Stein Stakes--the stein being gold plated of course.
What should happen is the Gold Cup (and most of the other Hollywood Stakes) move north to Golden Gate as part of a plan that would cut back Cal racing for most of the year to EITHER Northern OR Southern California, NOT BOTH.

I have heard from multiple sources that Santa Anita, Golden Gate, Del Mar, Los Alamitos and Fairplex will be seeking to run year-round meets beginning in 2014. They are going to import dirt from Aqueduct's Inner Track in an effort to wipe out the entire breed by 2019.
This race was one of the best, times has change, this race is a horsemen race for the last 2 years, the East Coast could careless about it
As Andy said, It just goes away in the sunset.
Jack Warner and this crew are turning over in their graves what these birdbrains have done to HP
I can't see any chance Frank will be running even one HP stake at SA. Maybe Fairplex could run the Gold Cup. With the quality of that race the past decade Fairplex might be a proper venue for it.
I would have to agree with Pete.After he bamboozled the Oak Tree group the HP legendary stakes races will go in the crapper.He mocked Oak Tree racing when he came up with those assanine names for the stakes races.
